    Roger and I have been friends for many years. There are many things he and I talked about on Monday's over the years that I can look back and still laugh about. Two pieces of wisdom I can attribute to our friendship that he passed on to me was don't sweat the small stuff (and most of what we worry about is) and don't take life so serious (try and enjoy the ride) I'm going to miss those talks.
