    Roy and Debbie and family; I am so sorry in the loss of your Dad. My prayers of sympathy and love are with you at this time. Just think the wonderful part is that the departing is only temporary. Love to all YOU!!!

    Roy,
    I am so very sorry to hear of your father’s passing. I know how much Dad’s mean to us. I do not know if he was ill for some time or passed from just being. Anyway, your Thanksgiving will always be remembered with his passing and his memories may inspire you each with every Thanksgiving from now on. May each Thanksgiving be a blessing with the thoughts that your father is in heaven smiling to you with no pain or sadness anymore. I will think of you and your family during this time. May God bless all of you.
    Your Friend and Co-Worker,
    Debbie Maxwell
