Not sure what to say?

Deanna - We are sorry for your loss and wish you well as you continue on in your continuing and challenging future. You and
Roland together were a fine example on how
two partners could work so well together. I
remember so well our dinner together with the Miles in that quanta Juanita setting.


I was so sorry to hear of Roland's passing - Whenever I drive into downtown Seattle I think of you guys and wondered if you still enjoyed living "in the City". .

I am very sorry for your loss,


I worked with Roland and Deanna for a number of years and found Roland to be compassionate and understanding during my life struggles. He always treated me respect. It was comfortting to have someone nonjudgmental and have a sense of humor around. I always had a special connection with Roland and always remember him fondly.

Rest in peace, Roland. I too like cats!

Roland and Deanna were our favorite neighbors in Bellevue for many years until we all moved away into condos. We'll miss
hearing Roland's wry take on world affairs, but thank heavens we still have Deanna. Our love and condolences to her.
