To the entire family of Roy. My late husband Capt "Chick", worked w/him on the fire dept, from 1977 till Roy retired. I remember when he helped us with a minor job we needed at our first house, without hesitation. we were so grateful it was so appreciated. but, he would not accept any compensation for his work. May he rest in peace w/all that have gone before him. Mrs."Chick"

It has been an honor knowing you.
You were an angel for me here on Earth.
Now you are an angel in Heaven.
I so enjoyed our morning and evening talks.
I am truly going to miss you my friend.
Although I am relieved that you are no longer suffering and that you are safely in Heaven where all angels go back.
Rest in Eternal Peace.
