It was my first adjusting assignment with State Farm. I met Roy with Lloyd White at the Hotel waiting for my files. Roy was working for Pasco Claims. I was somewhat nervous not knowing what to expect. Roy was a calming voice who said to me, you got this. Just do what they tell you....You’ll be fine. We were fast friends from that day forward. I loved Roy and miss him already.
