Roy and my Mom, Juanita Hulsey King, were first cousins. They grew up together and played together as kids. My Mom (who passed away in 2013) always told me Roy was one of her favorite people ever. He was kind to her, even as a child. She had health issues but he would pick her for the games when all the other kids would pass her over. This touched her deeply. They were very close and she spoke lovingly of him often. I was fortunate enough to get to speak with Roy a few months ago. It was so nice to be able to connect with him and hear fun stories about him and my Mom. This picture is of them and you can tell they had probably been up to no good (haha). I send my deepest sympathies to all his family and friends.
