Dear Colleen and Clancy and family, it was a sad time when I read of Roy's passing this morning. I have so many memories of times spent with him and Gloria. They were such a loving couple and enjoyed having people in their home for "little toddies," dinners made with veggies from the big garden, sharing anecdotes of bloopers and blessings. Roy so loved my jams; I never dared stop in without at least one jar for his sweet tooth, but putting it on his sweet potato was one memory I'll never forget! As long as I still have my own teeth, I will be forever grateful he was my dentist; his fillings are still intact. I regret that I will not be back in the north country for his services, but my thoughts and prayers are with you. May your many happy memories ease the pain of your grief. Lois Langtry and Ken Judd
