I remember those long ago days on Newberg Ave. Playing in the woods, running up and down the creek, Miss Katies store on Evergreen and Newberg, Granny Kitchens on Christine Dr. Growing up together and running the streets. It seems like a dream sometimes. I will miss you Roy. But I will always remember you cuz. My condolences to Joey and all my cousins and their loved ones. God keep and guide you.

Uncle Roy,
Thank you for being you and loving me all these years and taking care of me. I've told you these two things before but I'll tell you now. 1. You are MY scarecrow to my Dorothy. I miss you most of all. And 2. I'd never have another daddy but you were the closest thing to that for me. Thank you for the love , the care, the laughs and most of all thank you for Joey.
Love Me
