Hero is gone

Joy's dad, Roger Howell, Jr., got his final wings last night at age 92.

I know wife Lois was singing him home, and greeting him at heaven's door.

You fought the good fight, and will be missed by everyone who was blessed to know you, most especially missed by your children and grandchildren.

And me...your "Sandy Dandy" is already feeling your absence.

RIP, sweet Jolly Roger. Your mission is complete.
