    Danny & David and your families, I am so sorry for your loss. The blessing is that you know your Dad is not suffering anymore pain. Doesn’t help with the sadness we feel when we miss someone we love. I couldn’t make it to the viewing and service but had you in my thoughts and prayers.

    David, and entire family,
    It was a pleasure to have worked with Roy, a man of peaceable character and unyielding integrity. Most notable to me, he exuded attributes of gentleness, patience, and kindness the blind could see and the deaf could hear. His legacy points to mortality vanquished by life eternal. Well done!
