I have known Jean and Roger since 1965. We met at Grace Chapel in Havertown Pa. It was because of Roger and his wife Jean that I came to know the Lord as my Savior. I have been praying for them for years. Their four daughters are a testimony as to the way their family lived. Much love to the family.
