    Working at Arkansas Blue Cross & Blue Shield, I would always see Roger and he would greet you with a “BIG” pleasant smile. I was sooo shock to find out Roger passed away, because I had seen him about 2 to 3 weeks ago and we gave each other hug. Not knowing this would be my last time seeing him alive. To his family, you all have my sincere condolences. I’m gone miss Roger

    • Mellody Posted July 25, 2018 1:15 PM

      Thank you Carla. He always had a smile especially for Blue Cross people
