Uncle Roy, what a loving, giving person. When I was in the hospital you sneaked in after hours and while visiting one of your friends on a different floor. I was so sick from pain killers you actually held my head, wiped my forehead until I got to feeling better. I never will forget him for the kind words , holding me while I was sick. Thanks Uncle Roy ! You meant a lot to me during my worst night ever and always helping with whatever was needed, you was always there.
