I remember Roy as a very pleasant gentleman who always wore a radiant smile which seemed to say "I'm humble & I'm approachable." To his wife, children, grandchildren and close relatives you were all blessed with a caring and dedicated family man so be comforted in the memories that you would have shared. Murrell, your care and dedication to him in his final years are commendable. Sincere condolences.

May time soften the pain, until all that remains is the warmth of the memories and the love. It seems that the family chain is broken, but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again. BE STRONG. Underneath are the everlasting arms.
