I have known Roger for the past 6+ years.
He initially hired me to tune the pianos at Crossroads church, where he was the music director and has since taken me with him as he moved to serve as music director of Fairbanks UMC.
Roger is an extraordinarily talented musician. Unfortunately, due to his illness, he has lost all of his ability to walk, think clearly and have controlled movements, never mind being able to play piano and lead the music program.
Roger has been hospital-bound for well over a month now. They are in the process of moving him to a nursing facility where he will remain.
To make matters worse, Roger’s wife passed away only a couple of years ago and this situation has left Roger’s children to make it on their own. From what I understand, they are old enough to take care of themselves, but without Roger’s income, things have become somewhat difficult.
Fairbanks UMC has been trying to collect gift cards for food and other expenses that are being incurred due to Roger’s illness.
After learning of this last week, I offered to put on a concert at the church, where they can use the funds raised through ticket sales to help Roger and his family.
100% of proceeds will be given to the Raymie family.
If you are in the Houston area and are interested in attending, please let me know. I will post ticket prices and other information within the next few days. Thank you!
