Hello Roger,

Nice to see you have a page here. It was great seeing you in Chicago and meeting your executive board and your lovely wife in Charleston at the Seminar last April.

I hope the changes being made are having a positive effect on the department and the men. I've kept in email contact with Ricky Koger and Matt Thompson and it seems that things are moving forward. I hope that you are doing well.

Take care and I will see you around the site. The invitation to come to Cleveland and fish still stands.
