Uncle Roger was a part of my life through the stories my parents (Philip and Jenny Livermore)passed on to me, as well as the memories of visits I had with him and Aunt Joyce when I was younger. I can remember having fun spending time with them during the family reunion in Merrill, WI. I also have a lot of fond memories visiting Uncle Roger and Aunt Joyce at the farm in Faribault. I specifically remember having a great time playing with the dogs, riding horses, riding in his truck and roasting marshmallows out back. As an adult, my Dad always kept me updated on his conversations with his brother. Whenever they talked my Dad would be excited about catching up on the latest things going on in his brothers' life. I will greatly miss all of the stories and updates, as will my Dad.

Grandpa was a huge part of my life early on; he never treated me like I was a little kid. He always spoke very honestly and frankly about life and that made me feel really good. We used to always go on long bike rides- I still remember the old blue Schwinn and my little banana seat bike with the little spoke beads could barely keep up. Sometimes we would take one of the dogs with and that was always so much fun. Even 23 years later after all those long bike rides, walks, and horseback riding on Paco and Valencia, I still remember almost all of them and our talks. Everything that you taught me about life still stays with me today and I will always cherish those moments as long as I live. I love you grandpa.

Rodger was blessed with the gift of accepting people as if they were family no matter who you were or what your circumstance.He made you feel right at home with either a litany of jokes or his extensive talent of ideas and innovations.He touched my heart and I was truly blessed to know him...I believe the spirit of our loved ones linger though they have gone down the trail ahead of us..in the whispers of breezes and warm rays of sun, gentle rains and certain songs,a laugh that sounds just so and a scent that triggers a memory.We cannot see nor hold them but they are not far away.They surround us with quiet moments of peace and subtle moments of joy...be still and you can feel them...

I have lots of memories with the visits we made to his family in Merrill from the time I was a young girl. I was closer with his younger sister and brother but over the years got to know Roger a lot better. We have to be thankful for those times and should not ever be put off. May his soul rest in peace with his Lord and Savior.

I remember manyu a happy hour working with my brother as he helped me with my Triump Spitfire. As a struggling college student he was a God send helping me "keep-er running". I will always remember the fun hours that I spend with him and his wife Joyce as I visited weekends while in college. While we lived many miles apart, I have always had him in my thoughts and held him in my heart. My thoughts are with Joyce and the family.
