Gooooooo Grandpa Rog!!! You’re making me look bad and you have 50 years on me! Proud of you. I can only imagine what you’re going through right now, it must be incredible. Show that mountain who’s boss and come home to your family. I can’t wait to hear the stories you’ll bring back with you. Love Always Andrew.
