What sadness swept over me at hearing of your loss.... I counted it a privilege to work with Gary at The News-Gazette and of course with you too Roger. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I'll never forget your Dad's quirky little smile that said he was up to something... He was truly one of the last of the good newspaper guys.
