    Karen – My thoughts and prayers are with you and I hope that you will find comfort in the love of your friends and family during this difficult time. Roger was a treasured asset of the Allstate Insurance Companies and he will be profoundly missed. In my humble opinion, his greatest contribution to the company is that he made us all better people on so many levels.

    Dear Karen:

    Nothing I can say will relieve the pain that you are feeling at this time. I can only say, that Roger LOVED you and you LOVED him. You two had a VERY special relationship that so many people wish they could have and you had it. What a blessing! Even before you two decided to get married(in the legal sense), you already were married to each other. You were soul mates from the beginning and still will be soul mates forever. Roger will be watching over you, along with your parent’s and his. Their love and those here on earth who love you, will keep you strong and help you along. God is not ready for you at this time, as he was ready for Roger. There are still things left for you to do and we will all help show you the way.

    I love you my friend, through good times and bad, and always! I wish I was there.

    Love you,

    Valerie (IBTC V.P.)
