Dearest Rollie,

You are and always will be a part of each of us forever.

You have touched our hearts and impacted our lives in ways you can never know.

Your open heart and priority for family, fills our minds with cherished memories.

From your annual birthday greeting video sung by you, to playing Santa Claus on Christmas eve to your young grandsons.

Holiday family band concerts in the garage, and endless math quizzes and spellings bees with the boys.

Your love of music, theater, camping and travel with family has created a lifetime of memories and an abundance of smiles and laughter.

We love you and celebrate your life not your death, because that is exactly what you would have wanted.

A family tribute to our loving husband, father and gramps.
