    He was a great man. My parents enjoyed his visits when he stopped to let them know what was going on while farming their place.He will be missed by all who knew him.

    Dear Roeber family,
    I am Deb’s friend from when we were both in Colorado. Deb is a wonderful person and I always have thought she has a beautiful family. I had the pleasure of meeting Larry and Sharon at Deb and Kirk’s wedding – I knew instantly why Deb loved her parents so much and why she is such a wonderful person – truly outstanding parents! I cannot imagine the loss that you are all feeling. I am so sorry. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love Wendy
