Oh sweet Nina!! I am very sorry to hear of Roys passing. You truly were blessed riding the ride of life with Roy. I enjoyed having him as a patient for many years. He always had words of wisdom, a belly rolling laugh and a big Roll Tide to offer. Hang in there Nina. You know he is on his greatest adventure right now! Life is grand for Mr. Stallings. We are left to mourn, but he is living large! Praying for your entire family, as I hope you know, I adore you all!

Dad, you took me under your wing when I needed a father figure in my life. I never felt like a daughter-in-law instead felt like your very own daughter. You touch my life in such a positive way. I can still hear you say “well, now Sharon, let me tell you something”. I’m married to you eldest son Roy and couldn’t ask for a better husband. He is just like you, caring, compassionate, loving, giving, joyful as well as a great provider and caregiver. I will miss you Dad, although you are in heaven, you are part of my heart therefore I will never be without you.
I will always love you
Sharon
