Ms. Galvan was my fourth grade teacher, and I will never forget when Roland and her spent time with my family on Kauai. Denise and Roland were clearly so in love, and it was a treat to be around such amazing people. Roland always was so kind to me and everyone around, and the love between him and Denise radiated.

Remembering when I first met Roland. I was at my daughters and I saw this incredibly yummy man next door working on his truck. I was introduced and his smile was so joyful. He learned what I said and joked about it then and would whistle every time he saw me across the street. His teasing was also part of what was fun. When I moved out of my house. He drove me up there to make sure things that needed to be done were. Very giving man.
So very happy he was my friend. Fond memories of he and Denise and my family.
