Roger J. O’Connor, Jr. came into the world like a lion (March 1,1964) and left us like a lamb On Jan. 4, 2019.

A parent’s worst nightmare, the loss of a child. Our dear friends, family and strangers who offered prayers, mass cards, visits and consoling calls are heroes. Your guidance and blessings are a godsend. There’s even a tree planted in Israel, in remembrance. Thanks, AB!

Now the journey forward has begun. Truly, we could not be at this stage if it weren’t for all of you. And you know who you are. God bless!
