Rodger your memory will never be forgotten. You made work fun at the Waffle King along side Melvin, Granny, Barbara and especially your precious mama Ruby. Nothing but fond memories of the years I worked with you and the Waffle King will always hold a special place in my heart. Your infectious laugh made coming to work seem less of a job and more like hanging out with your best friends. You earned them wings so fly high my friend and please give your precious mama the biggest hug for me. My condolences to your family I pray God gives them strength in the days ahead.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I will miss Rodger's laugh the most. It was infectious. Many memories from the Waffle King, with Ruby, Granny, Barbara, Rodger, Melvin, and Ruth. Jackie know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be.
