Dear Maxine, Parker, Dawn and Chris.
Sorry for your loss, Roy will always have a special place in my heart. As a child the time Roy spent with us in Scouting was so special. To be an adult and see the time commitment Roy gave is truly a gift I always thought of your family as an extension of me, it was great to visit and hear the music everyone could play. Roy's mentoring will always be remembered. I have wished since the loss of Josh occured that I could have done more at the scene. Josh and Roy are reunited pain free, and watching over all of you. Again my condolences, sincerly

Maxine and family-thinking about you all at this difficult time.

We know this hurts so much and wish we could be there to give to you a big warm hug, to say we care for you, and Love you so very much. I came upon this verse.
By Love, they are remembered,
and in memory they live.
Even in your sorrow, I hope you can
hold on to the thought that a life
lived with so much love never really
ends, but goes on forever in the
hearts of those who remember.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, and your families.
Lots of Love Jeff & Renae Scott
