My deepest sympathy to Shirley and all the Cornell family. Roger and I were locker mates our freshman year at Boscobel High School and graduated together in 1956. My son Chris and his son Scott were friends during the short time we lived on the same street in Boscobel. Throughout our lives I enjoyed chatting with him at class reunions. I'll miss him as will other members of our class. I know you will be comforted by memories. -- Chuck Boebel
