Dear Connie and Family,

Royce was a true man of God. He led the Sunday School class that Gary and I attended. He was a great leader and helped me grow as a Christian. His Christian example was one to follow. When he sang to the Lord, everyone received a blessing. I will continue to pray for each of you during this time. God Bless.

I had the privilege of working with Royce at Gospel Baptist church for many years.
He was a great friend and leader and a outstanding Bible teacher.
His personality was second to none and you could be having a bad day and just a few minutes with Royce would brighten your day and make you feel like you were someone special.
He will be missed but thank God for the promise that we will meet again on the sunny banks of sweet deliverance.
