Dearest Sister Karen, Michael, Alyssa and Matthew - words cannot touch the depth of sorrow that surrounds your loss. It is beyond difficult to reconcile the two sides (your family's pain with the Joyous Reception we know that Roy is/has/will continue to experience with our Lord/Savior and Creator), of the same coin. May God's Comfort/Love/Understanding surround you each and every step of this arduous journey. YOU ARE LOVED :)
