My deepest sympathies to Roger and the children, grandchildren and family in the loss of this dear person. My mom was a friend of June since 1959 and I have so many memories as a kid of your parents coming over to our house or of time with with them and the rest of "the Group". Your mom is a very special woman and I know she will be very, very missed. Our deepest sympathies. Kevin DeYager
