I am so sorry to hear about brother Roy. He and Mollie were truly the best neighbors my mom and dad could have ever had! Brother Roy was always super good to my mom after my dad passed away. I am truly heart broken for the earthly loss of this kind, loving, and godly man. My life was enriched everytime I was privledged to be around him. I am thankful our hope is not in the world! I will see you again one day brother. I know you are already enjoying the most beautiful music you have ever heard. I will see you at His feet one day.

I grew up going to the church Mr. Roy went to. He was a good man. Always had a bright smile, warm hugs, and peppermints for us. He will be greatly missed.
