|Sad Loss Of Roger Love - 5|
Esther Sparks Powell (1956)
|I was so saddened and shocked to learn that Roger Love has passed away. He and his darling wife, Sue, have always been such a sweet couple and so generous with their time and energy through the years in helping with any kind of school reunion. Roger was an exceptionally fine person and will be greatly missed, especially at the "Old Dawgs." |
My heart and sincere sympathy goes out to Sue and the rest of their family.
For those who live away from Martinsville and may not have heard about this sad loss, I have added the obit notice from Friday's Martinsville Bulletin, as well as the later one in Sunday's.
