Jen, Diane and Kevin, I am so sorry to hear of Roger’s passing. I met Mr. Darling when I was entering Dublin High School since I was friends with Geoff. Funny he was a lefty-golfer like my dad! Roger loved the game and enjoyed opening his home during the Memorial Tournament. Fond memories as I remember back! Peace and comfort to all of you with many virtual hugs. Fondly, Lisa Meister Rismiller
