Dear Family,.
I first met Roger in a cemetery here with My old friend Jerry Schutte
Who known him forever.
We chatted about old Quincy and he always wanted to see my large Quincy collection and pictures, and post cards as he collected too.
I told him we had Frankenhoffs in my family too. I hope Roger wrote down his experiences and stories all are important for the next generation.
God bless his soul.
