Where do you start to share a 40 year friendship of all the memories we have with Raymond, Dottie and their family. We have had such good times in play with our Sea-doo s, cruises, bus tours, traveling the islands, the Keys, boating from Florida to Murrells Inlet; from Cape May, N.J. to Pawleys Island, Bucksport, Sandy Island, Georgetown. My What Fun We Have Had! If we were at Surfside, we always had coffee and toast every morning; lots of times the whole family and friends had dinner together-especially french fries, hot dogs, hamburgers, Bar B Q, etc. We will miss you Raymond, especially sitting on the back porch and solving all our problems and the way to make it happen. Raymond's wood working was phenomenal - he could make anything out of wood and he did, if he wanted to - A Great Talent- Only time will ease our burden of loss of Raymond but memories will last forever. Rest in peace our friend - We will always remember you. Love, Pete and Judy Dennis

I don't have enough words to say about Raymond... he was my father-in-law for 13 years when I was married to his son Tommy for 13 years and due to that I was out of his life for a while but came back in his life to help him as a caretaker. Raymond over came so many challenging obstacles during that time and got back to what he loved working in his shop.. we started a project that I wanted to try make, a plant cart on wheels so he came up with the design with an added side top if needed. He made sure that I was going to put every nail and screw in it, paint and add the wheels... we had so much fun as well as laughs doing this but he was in his element.. and he also went on to build several bluebird houses and I'm so grateful for the new bluebird family that has found a home in mine. For the many trips to Lowes we made, he always wore his World War II Veteran hat and so many people would stop him and thank him for his service, even though he appreciated that he was a very selfless, confident man that was grateful for what he accomplished but was not defined by his works but appreciated the friends he met along the journey. I am grateful for the stories of his past, how he achieved and started his life and grateful that I was a small part of it. Raymond Wayne Rogers thanks for so many memories you shared that I was part of and grateful that for whatever reason I was able to be a part of your ending life. Thanks Randy Rogers, he loved you so much....I know Raymond is rejoicing with Dot, Tommy, Bill, Granny and Papa....
