Community Matters: Lisa and Randy

Posted: Updated:

There are many ways people choose to deal with the loss of a loved ones.

For some, it's reaching out to others.

Each month we highlight people in area communities who are making a difference in their towns.

In this month's edition of Community Matters, we learn about one Belcourt couple's tradition of giving.

It's been seven years since Lisa and Randy Rogers of Belcourt suffered the loss of their infant grandsons, Cayden and Jayden.

(Lisa Rogers, Belcourt Resident)"Seven years ago our oldest daughter had twins, who one passed away right away and one passed away about four hours later."

In memory of their loss, they choose to give.

(Lisa Rogers, Belcourt Resident)This year we picked Tristan who has been near and dear to my heart ever since he was a little boy. I worked at the hospital. And we picked Sadie who is a helper to Randy when he substitutes driving the bus.

Tristan, Sadie, and their families were all invited to an afternoon of pizza, gifts and warm wishes.

It's a tradition rooted in love that has lasted throughout the years.

(Lisa Rogers, Belcourt Resident)"And we've continued now. We've doing elderly. We just pick a different group of people every year. And it gives you a different feeling to remember those two little guys."

Although the Rogers deliver this Christmas gift each year, they too are on the recieving end.

(Lisa Rogers, Belcourt Resident)"It's wonderful. Just to see the eyes on the kids that we get to be in contact with for the day and how happy they are to get the pizza and the presents. It gives you a definitely, a good feeling of Christmas."

It's the Christmas gift that keeps on giving.
