Roy was my Godfather and even though I didn't see him as much as I should I always loved him the same as I know he always loved me. Roy preached my first wedding and even though it didn't work out like planned. I'm still happy to know that mine was the last wedding he preached. I love you Roy and will see you again some day in heaven.

I heard Roy preach at Abraham church and enjoyed his sermons. He was a true man of God and I am very sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you and your family. May God's comforting arms surround you and bring you peace.
