Roggie (13), his sister Trina (29) and his nephew June(8) after leaving the Harlem Globe Trotters Basketball game in Charlotte.


Son, how much you’ve changed

From a little boy with no name…

Traveled around the world like it’s insane

Still with your real sharp eyes

Difficult times passing you by

Dealing with every situation at ease

Not in all situations were you pleased

Still turning into a little man

Only 13 and already have a plan

No matter what happens, we are by your side

Loving and caring with no surprise

And still this very day we always hope and pray

That through Gods eyes

Love and Happiness we strive!

By Roger and Birgit Pratcher
