Roy Wayne, I just heard the terrible news about your dad. Your dad touched many lives and his memories will be in my heart always. I didn't much care for the Star Trek shows we had to watch growing up. He had a big generous heart.
I'd love to see you while your in town. I would have tried to come to the funeral or visitation, but I just found out. Please call or email 479-9267402, mritechellen@yahoo.com. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Sincerely, Ellen & Stanley Powell

Roy Wayne and Linda you will always be in my heart and I am sorry for our loss. I will miss so many things about Uncle Roy...his laugh, his sense of humor, the way he would squat down for hours with his coffee cup in hand, and I will miss his good heart and the love he always had for his family. There are so many more reasons that he was my favorite Uncle...Sending hugs,smiles and comfront and lots of love. Vicky Kaye
