    It was a privilege to know someone like Roger. I worked along side the Engineering team for more than 16years. I’m really glad to share and have a catch up chat with him just recently when he came down to join a retirement gathering here in Wellingborough. I will truly miss him though I’m sure he’ll be looking after us who are left behind.
    I can relate the experience to you Jennifer, as I lost my husband two years ago, pretty hard and painful however they would have love for us to be stronger than ever..
    My sincere condolences, love and prayers to Jennifer and family.. God bless

    With love from Agie xxx
