    Bradley emailed this to me but I didn’t get it until after the memorial, I’m not sure I could of read it without getting choked up anyway.
    Mom,if you could please say the following on my behalf about Roger:

    Whenever i think about Roger and my experiences with him it strikes me at how much he influenced how i grew up. Besides my father he is one of the biggest reasons why i became so infatuated with the outdoors. I remember one of the things he would say when i began deer hunting was,” take one bullet hunting with you if you caint (pronounced as so)kill it in one shot, then you aint a real hunter”. Combine that with his infamous story about shooting and having to eat blackbirds and you can safely say that Roger is one of the reasons i am going to be a wildlife biologist. He taught me about patience and conservation, and about the outdoors in general. For all his faults and stubbornness, and all of his sarcasm, you could always tell that he did so because he cared. It is safe to say that im going to miss Roger, but i will always remember what he taught me.

    Thats all thanks mom, i hope this is appropriate
