To Joanne, Mary, Julie & families,
Mike & I first met Roy & Jean many years ago thru their daughter Joanne. Later becoming neighbors on Michters Rd. Couldn’t ask for better people; friendly , helpful, loving to family & friends & always happy to help ya out in a pinch. And the love for their puppies Josh. Roy coming over on his 4 wheeler with his chainsaw when a tree fell or him taking his grandson Travis around the neighborhood on it. Roy & Jean were always a pleasure to chat with & Jean always remembered us at Xmas sending a Xmas card our way. We will forever miss her smiling face while her & Mary would call me Rosebud Great memories ....
With deepest condolences, Rose & Mike
