Shuba & Carol,
I only met Roy a few times but I remember how nice he was each time I saw him and I could tell how much he loved you. I am truly sorry to hear about his passing and will keep you and your family in my continued prayers.

Brandon, so sorry that I didn't find out in time to pay my respects. I'm sure you remember that Buffington Mayer said his walk was "smooth". Get Pam to tell you if you don't know that story. Scooter and I called him "smooth" all the time. I am so sorry for your loss. I know that you have many great memories as we all do and will remember "Roy" with a smile. May the God of Mercy and Grace be with you and yours. With much love to you and yours
