Not sure what to say?

Roy and Robert were life time friends. Robert's mother had begun the Nursery Program at FBC with the two of them. After Robert's passing Roy would check on me occasionally-latest time was within 2 week of his death.Margar

I learned today (2-7-'21) about Roy's death. He and Robert had been life time friends; Robert's mother started the FBC nursery with the two of them. They were fast friends all through their school years, but kept contact occasionally until Robert passed. Roy occasionally would check with me to see how I was doing, as recently as within a month of his own death. Charlotte, I will pray for your comfort and peace with his passing. I'm sure he and Robert have been catching up since they are...

Charlotte, I am so sorry for your loss but thankful for his gain.
