Miss Me, But Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road And the sun has set for me I want no rites in a gloom-filled room, Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little but not too long, And not with your head bowed low, Remember the love that we once shared. Miss me . . . but let me go. For this is a journey that we all must take, And each must go alone. It’s all a part of the master plan A step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick of heart, Go to the friends we know, And bury your sorrow in doing good deeds, Miss me . . . but let me go.

I was so shocked and saddened yesterday when I heard of Roy's passing. I still can't quite get my head around it. Roy and I shared so many laughs over the years at Honeywell when I traveled down to Torrance, and even after he retired. He would send me emails every once in a while, telling me of his exploits (falling down stairs at the ski hill and hurting his knee) and your wonderful travels together (Australia, Scotland, etc). I loved the fact that he loved Canada...Paul Gross in particular! I remember well our dinner together in Torrance a number of years ago where I got to meet you for the first time...of course I felt like I knew you already since Roy always spoke of you. Roy was such a character. I've never met anyone quite like him and I know he will be missed.
Take care and remember the good times to keep him alive in your heart!

So saddened and shocked to hear about Roy's passing. I worked with Roy at Honeywell on a number of programs. I work from Canada and would travel to Torrance to test the control systems on the programs we worked on. Roy would make sure I followed the proper test processes and he had no hesitation to let me know when I was maybe not quite 100% adherent to the rules! But its not really the work stuff that sticks out...it the one time I was down in Torrance all by myself an Roy invited me out to dinner with him and his lovely wife Marge. I had a good time and it was so thoughtful of Roy to take the time to include me. Another memory is Roy's enthusiastic fandom of the CBC called "Due South" and in particular the lead Paul Gross. So now whenever I see Paul Gross in some other show or even an RCMP in red dress tunic, I think of Roy!
My condolences to Marge and Roy's family. Gone too soon and I know he will be missed.
