I am deeply saddened by the loss of Mr. Roger Gunn. He was a wonderfully thoughtful and loving person and always thought of others and built them up whenever he had the chance. His knowledge and expertise were unmatched in his field. I looked forward to Fridays at our facility to be able to do Stress tests and learn something new about Nuclear medicine. He will be sorely missed. He would always share his faith in the Lord. I know he is with his Creator now and in the loving arms of our Father. Until we shall meet again on heavens bright shore......much love to the family. Rest in peace.

Jeanette I wish I could have been off so that I could be there. Roger was like a second Dad to me and I give Roger al the credit for the success I have in my own career. Praying for you and the kids.
