  5. Vick,Curt,Machele,Sheryal,Billy Since all of us were always together growing up, it feels like we lost another one of our parents this year. It helps to remember all the fun times we had together and all the love our parents gave us. It's kind of bittersweet…I'm sad for knowing we no longer have them to talk to face to face but, I have comfort in knowing they have no more pain and "the boys" are up in heaven having a great time playing their music together while "the girls" are laughing and dancing. I love yas!

  7. I am thinking of all of you. We sure have a great family, lots of love. I will always remember when we were younger and the family playing and singing, Uncle Roy always played Cherry Pink and Apple Blossum White for me. He would just play and smile, he liked to make everybody happy, now he is playing and smiling in heaven. I Love you all.Angie

  8. Sheryal, Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Our words are of little use at a time like this,but God's word does bring comfort–"Lo, I am with you always" Is His promise. God Bless, Carl

  9. Our prayers and heartfelt condolences are with you all during these times. We will all miss uncle Roy. When I was 16 he spent several months trying to teach me to play the guitar. He finally suggested I play football instead as I was a lost cause at the guitar. Although I almost learned to play one song "Little Brown Jug". He will be missed by all! Charles and Familyfczr

  10. Grandpa/Aka PAPA you will be greatly missed and loved always and forever. I know in my heart you are in a better place. There are so many wonderful memories that we shared together. All the summers Nick and I spent with you and Grandma as we were growing up. The long horse back rides on Sun you would take me on thru the woods. They were so much fun, we jump fences,took Sun threw streams and mud. We would be gone for hours, my rearend would hurt, and I would walk funny for the rest of the day. I remember the project I had in 6th grade on our family tree. You sat at the kitchen table and told me everything you could possibly know about our family history while I recorded you on tape. I took it to school and played it for my class, I got an A! These are just a few memories,I could keep go on for days. My children never got the chance to meet you, but i will tell them what a great and wonderfull man you are. They will hear all the storys that me and my Papa did together. You have a huge impact on who I am today, and I am so greatful to have had you in my life. Papa I love, Rest in Peace ~ Angela

  11. Sheryal,I am sorry for your loss. Please know that my prayers & thoughts are with you & your family. I wish I was there to offer my personal support, but may you find peace in your faith.

  12. Roy was 9 years older than me, he and I had to share a bed.He left home when I was about 7 years old, I really missed him then.I will really miss him now.See you soon big brother.

  13. Im not gonna say good-bye because I know I will see you again someday. Just know how very special you were to all who knew & loved you.I remember all the weekends we spent in Linden riding horses,hunting & listening to the music you & Billy would play till all hours of the morning. I think my favorite thing to hear you play was the organ in the mornings to wake us all up.I know you will be playing us all a tune to lift our spirits as we struggle to get through your passing. We love you & Miss you.
