This is still very hard to believe. I am so very sorry to the family for the loss of Papa Roy. Just to see the number of visitors and those affected first hand it is clear to see how profound this loss is. To know this family is to love them.

Barbara & family
Words cannot express our deepest thoughts at the loss of Roy. He was always a very close friend and we appreciated all the things he did for us. His great way with horses was wonderful and we know how much he missed that in the past few years, but we do know that he is up there taking care of all the ones that he couldn't take care of down here. I know that my golden palomino, Dusty is so glad to see him.
Again our thoughts and prayers are with all of you
Billy & Edith Morris

I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. Mr. Roy was a special man. Every time he came to my house to service our gas insert, he entertained me with his stories...many of which included his adventures with you. He was very proud of you and loved you like only a Dad can. My prayers are with you and your family.
