Dear Mary and family: Bill and I are both saddened and very sorry for your loss of Roy. I can remember when Kelly, Angela and myself were trying to figure out what was going on with you Mary. Then one day Kelly blurted out "are you going out with Roy OKe"...your face lit up and the biggest grin ever was all over your face. He truly was a kind and wonderful man. Our thoughts are with you and your family.
