"Let us who knew Roger as he so articulately expressed to a Columbia Professor of Law "before I was formed" may we express appreciation for his life, which he lived fully, for his talent, for his integrity. His voice was an important voice, it was an important Candle, which was important to be lit "rather than curse the darkness." May he, his parents, rest in peace. May his family, his children and his talented wife whom I have not had an opportunity to me be consoled in this time of loss. America E.
