The most amazing person I've ever had in my life is no longer with us anymore. He taught me how to love and be kind. He taught me how to be a man. He taught me everything that I know. I am forever grateful to have had him in my life, hes truly shaped who I am today. Not sure what its gonna be like without him yet but I do know that he made me strong enough to get through this.

Papa was the best father I could've ever asked for, I'm so lucky I was born into his and Nanas family.

Roland was a great man, very quiet, and had a great sense of humor. I always liked going over to visit, and when I did, gathered a feeling of comfort and love. Him and his wife Linda always took people in and loved them like they belonged. Roland was a very kind man who loved Linda and the kids very much. He had a love for antiques, and had a hobby of collections of many sorts. He will be missed.
