Hello my deepest condolences to the family I will never forget when Roy did our 25th wedding anniversary as we renewed our vows. He asked if I was nerves I said yes . He said will you love him and Ralph loves you. You both have lived with each other and God bought you here today to re strength your love for one another. Thank you brother Roy for that peep talk and being a big part of our life. It really is true God puts people in our path for a reason. You will be missed be not forgotten RIP.
