    My deepest sympathy to the Rogers’ family. Rick was a kind spirit and was always relentless in teasing Ivana’s friends. I will fondly remember all the good times we had. Love you Vana, and I am praying for comfort and peace for you.

    So sorry to hear of Ricks passing. We had a lot of fun working together at Foxley Cattle Co. long ago in the seventies and early eighties. He was very talented as a team roper. He also gave me a tip on a horse at the race track in Columbus and later apologised for it.
