Celebrating the life of Charles K. Rogers
Thank you for signing Charles K. Rogers's Guestbook
Charlie Rogers was a very special Man. His wife Charlotte, my Husband Charles ( now deceased) and myself had many wonderful years together. We almost always spent Easter together and the Rogers always visited us when my grandchildren were here. Charlie would always have a project for them to work on or a story to tell. My granddaughter Lilja (age 11) remarked "Mr Rogers is a very interesting man. We will all miss him so very much. Karen McCaughey
