To the family of Roger Brush, I knew Roger when he was a child. Eva Brush Etter was my dearest friend as a child and all through life until she went to Heaven. Ruth was my babysitter and she told me Roger would take my daughter for a ride on his bicycle. I am so sad to hear of his passing. Please accept my condolence. The Brush family always meant so much to me.

My thoughts and prayers are with Roger's family. I remember Roger from high school where he was a great athlete and inspiration to others. He was a proud Marine. While he wishes no service for himself, he willingly gave his service to his country.
