Kathy, whenever I think of your dad, Roy, my memory leads me back to the summers at Garner State Park! Your family would spend weeks camping there and Steve Lindquist and I would come by and visit your campsite. Your parents were always so welcoming, happy to see us and offered us to stay for dinner. We looked forward to our Garner trips each summer...making memories with you, your generous family and your best friend, Bridget Umfrid from Houston will always be treasured! Patti, Jolie and I send our condolences and His peace to you and your family. The trumpets sounds and joyful celebration of Roy's welcome home jubilee must be an awesome site! Take care and God bless you all! Love ya!
Your bud, Pat "Karshis"
