To Roy's Family, I have just recently heard of Roy's passing and wish to extend my sincere condolences to you all at this sad time. Mother ( Vi (Dorgan)) and I visited Roy and Flo a few times at the George Boyak. Mother always spoke so kindly of Roy and enjoyed her visits with him in the past few years, as did I when I saw them reminice. My thoughts are with you at this time. God Bless.

Roy worked hard from a young age and endured some difficult times raising a young family after the death of Leonara. I met Roy in 1963. He was at a comfortable stage of his life ... a loving husband, father and grandfather.

I remember his retirement party in 1974 and thought that Roy and Flo had earned a long and comfortable retirement. I suspect it surpassed their own expectations.

Thank you Roy for being a wonderful grandfather to my chldren. They will not forget you.

Thank you for the phone call today, Caron. I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Roy's passing. He did have a very nice life! That is such a comfort. And as I said, he was always "one of my favorites" - never a harsh word....ever. My love to you all at this time. Myrna
