  1. Dear Silva Family
    Roger always seemed like a kind and gentle person. I was always touched to see him at church surrounded by his many family members. It was clear that your family took care of each other and loved one another and I will pray for calm and peace for all.

  2. Michelle as you know Wes loved your sweet Dad . Roger was always giving Wesley gifts through the years he and I are so saddened for your loss. I did tell Wes and made sure he knew where your precious Dad is and of course he said Roger is with Jesus . We will miss that sweet man but take great comfort in knowing where he is and look forward to seeing him again. All our love thoughts and prayers .

  3. Roger was such a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. He is now reunited with the love of his life, Veneta, and living inside the gates of heaven. May he rest in eternal peace. My heartfelt sympathy to Michelle and her family. May the warm memories of Roger bring them peace and comfort in the difficult days ahead.

  4. Michelle, family and friends of your dad, I am lifting you all up in prayers wrapped in peace and glory of his great love. May the source of his strength guide you at this difficult time.

  5. A great man! His faith took him home to be at peace with his wife that he grieved every day. He will be missed by so many. My love and prayers to Michelle and Roger’s entire family.
