These are a few words from Roger:
Rochelle, Thank you for going above and beyond to help me through this battle with cancer.  I couldn’t have made it without you.  I know this was a difficult time for you, but you inherited your strength from your Nana.  I wouldn’t have wanted anyone other than you - you will be OK, you’ll be alright.  
I would like to thank Brian, Eric, Henry, Lance, Sean, Linda, Jim and Chris for staying with me, calling me, and encouraging me to keep fighting.  Your best buddies of mine, I will miss you.
I would like to thank 1127 Construction Co. Inc. owners, including a special thank-you to owner and friend, Nick.  Your support when I was sick and your support to my wife is more than I expected.  I was so proud to work for you and I pass away with pride imprinted on my heart. 
Tom and Mary Pelton, words cannot explain the outreach of comfort, you dedicated yourselves to me.  The calming of my tempest fears shows how decent human beings you are. I will take good care of Hazel and Molly.  I’m going rabbit hunting with Rascal, Hazel and Molly on my lap.  Take care of Rochelle “Sweet Pea”.
Please remember, this is a difficult time for Rochelle.  She has spent a great deal of time putting together a special day that reflects what we meant to each other.  I am done.  “I love you Sweat Pea, you did well”.

All condolences are to be sent to my wife Rochelle.
