I remember when I came to Holbrook I didn't know who sister Rogers was. When Esther Stant had to go to Snowflake, to go work at the temple for little bit, she took me to sister Rogers house. So Esther, introduce me to her and we started talking to get to know each other. Sister Rogers asked me, "what do want for lunch"? "I said I don't know". As a shy little typical 11 yr old girl, I went with sister Rogers to KFC to order some bucket of chicken, coleslaw, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, and other delicious food. Well as you know, her and I! Started laughing when we were watching a funny show. I love sister Rogers, she is a kind hearted elderly lady I ever cared for. I will miss you forever and for always!! Until we meet again.

Years ago, Aunt Lucille was driving what seemed like a cluster of us cousins. My recollection is blurred but I believe we were all driving from Bayfield to Colorado Springs. There were some Rogers, some of Uncle Lynn's kids, me, and maybe even a few Lunas for diversity. Just a heap of relations without seat belts barreling cross country in the old International. Coming down the east side of Wolf Creek pass someone (most likely one of Lucille's sons) encouraged "let's coast." I had probably been in a coasting car before but it was never broadcast. Throwing a car in neutral and coasting seemed so reckless and thrilling. I admit my morning commute is probably more dangerous and honestly I probably reach higher speeds, but at 5 or 6 Aunt Lucille was a rockstar daredevil; smiling and laughing as we all slid down that fabled pass. Later, after my mom passed away, all of my aunts sort of adopted my kids as their own grand kids. One reunion Aunt Lucille made quite an impression with one of my boys. She just listened for hours as he shared his childlike enthusiasms. I remember watching and being so grateful for the love she gave him. I will miss Aunt Lucille's warmth and the fun we had Cousin Jason Lee.
