Hi everyone,

It is with a very heavy heart that I have to tell you all that Nordic Garrison member Roger Ljungholm / ID-2309 has passed away. It's not yet totally clear what happened or exactly when he died but it is believed that he slipped into a diabetic coma and simply didn't wake up.

Roger was a wonderfully weird guy and a great member of our garrion. He will be sorely missed.

NG will be collecting up money for flowers and attending his funeral. If anyone else wishes to attend then the funeral will be at Norra Kyrkogården at 12:00 on Tuesday 24th February.

Goodbye my friend.

That's really sad news. I had some really interesting and nice conversations with him, and who can forget his wonderful photoshoot in Ö-vik.

He will be missed, unfortunately I wont be able to get to the funeral.

The loss of any trooper is very sad, but knowing the committment and effort that Roger would have likely put in to improve the lives of others and put smiles on the faces of both adults and child alike is a legacy that many cannot match.

Condolences from the UK Base. Rose

[voice=Obi-Wan]Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo![/voice] Shocked

Am really, really sorry to hear this. Sad

Roger was great to troop with - I had the honour both in Ö-vik and Stockholm last year.

Will really miss him and his wonderful weird-ness.


Rest in peace - and May the Force be with you, whereever you are now.

I am chocked. I knew that he has had health problems, but I did not know that his health was that fragile.

Some of my best times trooping, have been trooping with him. Each time has been rememberable. I will miss him.

I would like to attend his funeral, and I contribute with something for the service.

May you get great björkris and coffee in the afterlife, Roger!
