Roger McBride was my dad's best friend from early childhood all the way until the week Roger passed away. Best friend is not a casual term for my father, Shirl Jackson, for it actually means brother to him. As best friends growing up, they played together and as adults, they sang together. Roger and Shirl could blend their voices together at a moment's notice and sing amazing harmonies to the greatest hits from Kingston Trio to John Denver and Peter, Paul and Mary. Shirl became a businessman from the big city and moved away from Idaho his whole adult life, but he taught us that visiting family back in Idaho was the best kind of family vacation. We always went to Idaho 1-2 times a year and often visited the McBrides. A few times they came and visited us too. We loved that big family with all the fun happy kids. We loved it when Roger pulled out the guitar and the two of them broke into song. We of course sang along too, but listening to them sing so well together was the real treat. My dad always embraced his friend lovingly and they cried tears of sadness whenever they had to depart. We love the whole McBride family for their love and loyalty to our family all these years. Thanks for sharing Roger with us, he will be sorely missed by all.
