While riding the night link Mr Roger had a fare to pick up at the Sonic then got an order of onion rings the fare was not off work yet so I was ready for pickup he asked if I minded him going back to get a fare I said no ! I would like to get some onion rings ! We laughed he thought the smell would bother me ! How thoughtful of him to care if his food smell bother me but, That was the caring gentle man he was .
