Sad news

Rog and Sam

Rog and Sam

It is with such great sadness that I’m writing this post today. I’ll keep it brief because I don’t really feel like I have the words to describe what a tremendous loss I am feeling.

Roger became much more poorly this week and on Thursday was readmitted to Wirral St John’s Hospice, where he had been cared for so brilliantly. On Friday evening, shortly before 8pm, he passed away peacefully surrounded by his family.

Thank you for all your kind messages and tributes to such a wonderful, kind, loving and clever man and a fantastic father. I couldn’t have wished for a better partner in crime, for however short a time we had together. I’m missing him so much already.

Love you Rog.

xxxxx Julia

    I will always carry you with Rog in my heart you as you are in that wedding photo. I actually walked to that spot outside the registry office this afternoon and had a moment just thinking about Rog and you, beaming next to the trees on your wedding day. We’ll miss him terribly and though looking for the positive spin is almost impossible today, I guess we can say we were so lucky to have had him lighting up our lives in different ways through all that he was and all that he did, even if he went far too soon from us all. He would love what you have just written. I love you x

You have been so incredibly brave, incredibly strong and incredibly amazing throughout this whole horrendous time and Roger was truly truly lucky to have such a wonderful wife by his side.

Most people don’t get that. It’s also a fitting tribute to the love of writing and journalism that brought you and Rog together. In our prayers and thoughts as usual.xxx

Life can be so cruel but at least he had the enormous love of you and your beautiful kids to comfort him through this awful time and that can’t be underestimated. Love to you all. Colin

    Oh my darling, I am so sorry – for Roger, who was cheated of old age, for those beautiful children who will grow up without their father, and especially for you, because you have lost your soul mate. It’s deeply, bitterly unfair. Please know that you’re not alone, there are so many people living in your laptop, myself included, who would give anything to climb through your screen and hug you right now, who will do whatever they can to help if you can only tell us what you need.

    Love to you. xxx

    Dear Jules
    Words cannot describe how we all feel today. Roger became a huge part of our lives as did you and Sam during his stay with us on 17. Then came The birth of Florence our first ward baby what a beautiful girl she is. Rogers banter which made us laugh so much with his consultant and how they to became friends. ( never had I experienced this before in my nursing career just proves what a lovely man he is funny, intelligent and brave) The special bond we had with such an incredible man will never be forgotten Xxx

    I know the words of strangers probably bring little comfort at a time like this, but from reading your blog, I think you and your family have borne such an inevitably heart-breaking situation with incredible grace, humour and honesty. The wonderful thing about small children is that, despite everything else going on around them, they’ll still barge in at the same time every morning before starting their usual routine. Of course there will be sadness, but I suspect there’ll also be a lot of wonderful memories to share and treasure for evermore. Thoughts with you all.

    I’m relatively new to blogging and wasn’t aware that you were going through such a terrible time. It saddens me to hear your news. I don’t really feel like I should be commenting at all but you wrote with such courage in this post. Something many people wouldn’t have been able to manage. It may be that you have given someone in similar circumstances some comfort to know they are not alone in their own battle, as I would imagine it’s incredibly isolating. Is there comfort in that? I would imagine right now there isn’t much comfort in anything. But please know this. Your words have touched many and the many are thinking of you and sending you their kindness, comfort and peace for you and your family. Don’t feel alone because we’re here.

    Best Wishes

    Julia I’m weeping just trying to imagine how you must feel – I know I can’t and hope I never have to. I’m so glad that you found your partner in crime, even if you only had a short time together.
    I pray that life is kind to you over the coming weeks, months and years. My heart goes out to you and yours. xxx

    Oh Julia, I am so very sorry and shocked to hear your news. I so wish there was something I could do to make it all ok for you. I also wish I could say something that doesn’t sound so trite but please know that I’m willing you all to feel as if you can cope as quickly as possible.

    Much love

    I am so so sorry for your loss, I wasn’t aware of your blog until I saw an article in the echo.
    We lived 3 doors down from Roger on Vale Road, Woolton when we were kids. My brother Robbie (Giles) was his best friend and partner in crime until we moved when Rob was 16, they stayed in touch a good while after but then Rob moved abroad and they lost touch.
    We grew up with Roger, he was a wonderful guy, we had such laughs with him. He was a fellow ginger kid with me and my little brother, we’d often pretend he was our older brother not Rob.
    My Mum has this fab memory of him when he was aged about 4 with his mop of mad hair and my Nan patted him on the head and said aren’t you a lovely little girl, to which Roger stomped his foot hard and shouted “I am NOT a GIRL” , she reminded him of that when he was a teenager to much hilarity.
    We are all so upset hearing this news and pass on our condolences to you and your lovely family.
    Rest in Peace Roger.
