Dear Paula and Family,
I was sorry to hear of Roy's passing. I know he has been ill for some time. I remember Roy as a basketball player at Calais High. He was so good. Such a kind young man even when he was a teenager.
I enjoyed so much viewing the photos. The one I really remember him by is the High School Photo.
I can truly say I know how hard it is to loose someone you love and have had such a wonderful life with. In the years ahead you will have many wonderful memories.

God bless you and your family during this difficult time.

Dearest Paula,
We had so many good times with you and Roy, and fun times! The fancy parties and dinners, the neighborly back and fiorths, the horse farm times, the desert times, Payson and I could go on and on. Roy and Glenn got to be great pals and Roy was so good to me and always treated me like a lady. We both loved Roy and miss him dearly too. We're here for you Paula.
Love from your neighbors,
Glenn & Ava
