  1. To the whole Rogers Family:

    I can not begin to express the sadness that I feel at loosing such a close and long standing friend like Dwight. I believe Dwight was the first friend that I ever had. From our early days as toddlers to roomies at A&M, we remained friends. No matter how long we might have been separated, when we reconnected, the conversation picked up right where it had previously been. All I can say, it was an amazing friendship. My life is richer for having known Dwight.
    Rest in peace my friend, I am going to miss you.

  2. Dear Carol, Louisa, David, Ann, Bruce and all:

    I’m so very sorry to hear the sad news of Dwight’s passing. It’s still hard to believe.

    Even thought I hadn’t seen Dwight in a very long time, I was lucky enough to re-connect with him recently. Just two weeks ago I had such a nice visit with him, Ann and Carol. I gave him a hard time about not having a phone with a camera and I took a picture of him with Ann and Carol. He was a remarkable person who loved his family more than life.

    Please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

  3. Mr. Rogers was an amazing person and a great teacher. He was kind and took the time to help his students, even after school. I wish I had told him thank you. He will be sorely missed.

  5. As a substitute teacher at Santa Fe, Mr. Rogers was always such a help to me and certainly many times I needed it! Memories of him will always be with kindness and thoughtfulness. Such a nice, dear man and so well liked, not only by me, but watching expressions on students faces, they felt the same. I know he will be solely missed. May God be with his wife and family.

  6. I worked at Roger’s Malt Shoppe while in high school and was in Bruce’s class. I have many fond memories of the Rogers family. I remember getting to know Carol when I was a volunteer at the hospital in La Marque, later getting my nursing degree too. Carol, please say hello to Mrs. Rogers and Bruce. May God bless your family in this time of sorrow.

  7. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I was a customer of Mr. Rogers, he is the reason I made my choice to become a returning customer. Just a week ago he was at my kitchen table discussing a quote & his experience as a teacher. What a tragic loss. My thoughts & prayers are with the family.
