  2. To the family of Roger Higgins

    Roger was such a smart and cheerful man of integrity. It was always my pleasure to see him and Cynthia. He was always so proud of his family. I hope he had a peaceful journey and I know he is now in the light of the love of Jesus Christ his savior. Please find comfort in that fact. Sending peace and love to the family.

  3. My friend

    This friend of mine was a great man, friend, christian, co worker, and teacher. I bet he never knew how much he taught other people. His smile was contagious. His laugh was warm. Heaven has gained and angel, and my prayers are with his wife and family.

  4. Cynthia, Jannon and family, Just wanted to let you’ll know how sweet, lovable, kind, generous, and a amazing man Roger was to everybody. He will surely be missed by all that knew and loved as we the Clary’s will. Nothing can take away the good memories we have and will keep forever of Roger. You’ll will be in our prayers and we love you!!!! Bonnie and Lawrence
