Our love & prayers go out for Nancy , Kelly , Bud , Kim & Family . Roy was such a dear man . He was quiet , yet always kind & filled with love of life , family & friends . I recently sent him a card after learning of his hospital stay . Not long after that , in the midst of his own problems , he called just to thank us for the card . Just hearing his voice , was very precious & emotional . Having known Roy was a true Blessing !
