We are so very sorry to learn of Mr. Roy's passing. I worked with him for many years at the Courthouse. He always greeted me with that precious smile of his. He could make you feel like you were the most important person to him. What a loving couple he and Brownie were, and I am so blessed to have been a part of that "ole" Courthouse family with him. Our love and prayers are with all of you. Nancy and Tim Owen
