I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I am a cousin of Roger and have not seen him since I was a very young girl. Uncle Lester and Aunt Pearl were very special to me, but Roger was an adult by the time I was born so we didn't know each other well. My grandfather was Leonard Cossie Whyte, the uncle of Roger and brother of Lester. I'm thankful I was able to run across this information to make a connection with this part of our family. My prayers are with you during this time.
