"We just saw Roy's obituary in the paper last night. Our prayers are offered in support to his family during this difficult time. Our family has always felt close to Roy. We will always remember the old 8mm home movies of him and the other Great Deer Hunters doing their thing in Pocahontas County...what good times they all had! The old Farley Reunions up Heizer Creek also come to mind...the ones when Grandpa was at one end of the grounds and Grandma was at the other. Roy was always the life of the party. Although we will miss him...his memory will always be with us, especially that smirky grin we all loved. "
