I met Roger about 20 years ago and since then, saw him two or three times a month, every month, at various card shows. I always stopped at his table to have a chat. He was so nice, so pleasant, such a kind soul.
Roger was a huge supporter of my endeavors, having started with me when I first organized my show at the Clarion Hotel by Mitchell Airport in Milwaukee some eight years ago. He supported me when I fell flat on my face in June of 2015 when no one showed up to the show and I had just five dealers and 12 tables. Then he was there at the Salvation Army when I had my largest show to date last month with 115 dealers and 170 tables. Through my failures and successes, Roger, my rock, was there, always with words of encouragement. I just can't say how much I appreciated Roger Baehr. He will be missed dearly.
