Condolence & Memory Journal

Sad to learn of the passing of Mr. Rogers, whom with Ethel were among the finest people I have known. Neighbors and friends. Devoted educators and mentors to many.

Joe was an empathetic, kind, yet tough as required principal. Ethel was hysterically funny, quick and warm, and both were 100% devoted to the kids of Ipswich.

They were inseparable, so no surprise their passing(s) were
relatively close.

Warm wishes to their daughters and grandkids. Your folks will be missed.

With Sympathy,

Tom Esperson
