There are not words to express our gratitude for having shared a part of our lives with Jack Rogers. We came to Salem UMC many years ago. I was the organist then and became friends with Jack & Polly who were both choir members! What wonderful people! We came to Sunday School because we heard that Jack taught the class and was an excellent teacher. He was that and more!!! What a loving, gentle man, so intelligent and so humble. We loved him so very much! Then, we left Salem and went to play for other churches. A few years ago we returned and were able to spend a short time getting to know Jack & Polly again. He was exactly the same. He had our utmost respect, admiration and love!! Our thoughts and prayers are with Polly and all the family and with all of us who knew and loved Jack!!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Carson family. We were saddened to learn of Mr. Carson's passing. I have truly missed seeing Mr. and Mrs. Carson cruising Pearidge RD....such a sweet couple, always put a smile on my face seeing them together.

Polly, Mary Ann and Carson, please know of our deepest sympathy for your loss of our special friend, Jack. We spent many hours together during our tenure at Burlington. Of all the wonderful people with whom I worked during 42 years in the textile industry, Jack is at the top. May the memories of his love for you (which was shared often in his references to you) sustain and comfort you in the days to come.

He was a great man and will be missed. I'll miss hearing him talk about the old mg and studebaker.

My father Robert Cuthrell has gotten to know Mr.Rogers, while at Oak Grove Nursing Center. They were room mates for a short time. My Dad was so glad to have some one like Mr. Rogers to talk to. They talked about the war, their families and growing up in the twenties and thirties. Even after they were moved to other rooms, they sought each other out and talked most days. You have our sympathy for the loss of this man who was so kind and friendly with us. We will keep you all in our prayers.
