About Us

Welcome to Sincerely Uplifting. We are so glad that you are here to celebrate with us in our interests and life.

You are probably wondering who we are?

Who Are We?

We are Roger and Becky Willis from the tourist town of Watkins Glen NY. We have 3 grown children (2 sons, and 1 daughter). We also have a wonderful daughter-in-law who is married to our oldest son and 2 beautiful and fun grandchildren (1 girl -age 9 and 1 boy -age 5). We will have been married for 25 years this coming September 2020. In the past 1-1/2 years, we have lived in many places due to losing our house to a house fire (on October 12, 2018). We also lost our last 2 dogs who were sisters and about 11 years old at the time.

We started our journey out living with our oldest and his family for 8 1/2 months.

Then we ventured to a cottage on Cayuta Lake, NY. We enjoyed living on the lake. I even got out on the kayak with the neighbor that lived next door after her asking quite a few times. After being there for 3 months and the weather getting too cold, we moved to a hotel in Horseheads NY from October 1-February 3.

Our brother-in-law (my sister’s husband) was in a terrible accident on January 10th, 2020, so in February we moved to live in their house while my sister stayed as close as she could to her husband.

Their house needed to have someone in it during this time, and their 2 dogs needed some people to inhabit their house so they could be taken care of. We thought that my brother-in-law was going to be able to come home.

So on April 3, we moved back to the hotel we had been at before and even got our old room back! I will admit it is different during the COVID-19 situation. There are no housekeepers, no breakfast and rarely any guests. But we feel blessed to have a roof over our heads and a place to sleep at night.

So Follow Us on Our Journey
