I've known Roger Rollings for the best part of 35 years. His wonderful, wonderful widow Tereasa, was my very best friend in High School, as well as being my instructor in Anatomy/Physiology, General Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry. She has also been one of my greatest mentors through the years. She is remarkable in every sense of the word.
Roger loved his Lord, his family, and life in general. He will be truly missed. But we know that "Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints." This is precious to God. In time it will become precious to the rest of us.
