Dear Cousins, Sorry to hear of Uncle Royal's passing. I remember some early demonstrations he gave of wiggling his ears. I wish I could have caught one of his performances. With love, Bob

Dear Ellen, Ken, Ray, Dave, Liz, Mark, Our condolences to you. We will always remember the nice visits we had with A Mary and U. Royal when they visited us here in Wisconsin. It was especially nice that the three sisters, Elsie, Mary and Claire could visit around our dinner table. U. Royal took pictures, of course. Love, Barb and Pete Truttmann

Dearest Ellen, Ken, Raymond, Elizabeth, David, Mark and Families, We were ever so saddened to learn the news about Royal. We will forever remember his smile, his beautiful music and encouragement in that area to our son Josh, his photography (so inspired and a delight to my Mom, especially the Christmas photos he took of our family when Tom was about nine months old), his wisdom, laughter and gentle ways. Your Dad was a devoted and loving caregiver to your Mom in later years. This past summer we enjoyed time with Royal when he'd stop by often on his bike rides when we were clearing out my Dad's house. He would delight in stories of our "unearthed treasures" for the day, and enjoyed great conversations. We would always end our fun visits with, "We are coming to your house next, Royal!" and he would inevitably laugh and laugh, as our parents rivaled for the most kept stuff in their houses, eh? Best of all were our holiday dinners, an enduring tradition for decades, in the early years with us entertaining them with our silly shows, and enduring with love, joy and memories, even as we nearly carried our Moms in walkers, and they could look at each other with memories of the joy raising kids together and sharing life's daily treasures. God bless Royal, as he now greets your Mom in heaven. In his memory, I think of the Serenity Prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trustimg that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him in the next. Amen. Sending much love to each of you, Barbara and Michael Bosworth, Vienna, Virginia
