I am so very sorry to hear about my old friend Roy. Once we met, it did not take long to figure out we had the same passion. I took in all that he had to share and used it to the best of my ability. My mother will also miss the weekly visits at the restaurant and stories he had to tell. He was a great man and is already missed. Mrs. Roy, on behalf of my mother and I, our thoughts and prayers go out to you at this time of need. God Bless.

Over the years I have thought about both of you and still remember the night Tommy and I were invited to your home for steaks. He was such a dear friend to me. I will remember you in my prayers.
