Dear Irene and family, I am so sad and sorry to find out about Roland's passing. I really wanted to make it to the funeral but health issues dictated otherwise. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and hopefully one day can make that visit happen. Take Care.

Uncle Roland you meant a lot to Gary and I. He used to tell me when he was a young boy you would tell him all about your war stories when you served in Korea. Who would have known that Gary would be with our heavenly Father before you. But I will treasure the time when you came for a visit to Vergil's when we were home for a visit from Texas. What a good time we had reminiscing. I took a photo of the four of you. You, Irene, Vergil and Gary and we commented how much you looked like your dad, Grandpa George. Now you are with Gary once more in the loving arms of Jesus. Blessings & Love, Judy Charles
