FR ROGER DAVISON: Neil & Jo Wookey would like to share the following email. Dear Neil and Joe, I assume you and your family have been well with your daily lives. Often my poor memory goes back to H’ham Ferrers in 1981 so that I could have enjoyed the old days, especially Anty Nelly, Mrs. Gesch and various old friends. It has become my spiritual food by which being made lived. By the way, I have received an annual report from Society of the Sacred Mission, and have found the name of Fr.Roger’s death. As we have both been trained at Kelham, Notts, it has given me such a sadness. I suppose you have already heard its news. Please send my personal condolence to everyone who remember him much. Please take care well on your physical health, and love and prayers for all of you and Joe. Very affectionate in our Lord. Fr.Clement.
