    Carolyn, Dana, Bill, Jessica, Joshua, and Laurie:

    My heart was saddened when I heard the news about Roy. If I can say one thing from experience, you’ll think about your husband, dad, and grandpa every day of your life, and that’s OK. He’ll always be with you.

    It’s probably been over 15 years since I’ve seen you, but you’ll always be me friends.

    God Bless you all. You’re in my prayers!
