    Lib… It was with sadness that I just heard about
    Roy from Dianne. I was very fortunate to grow up next door to you and Roy and Mitt and Lloyd.
    I have very special memories of all of you. Roy was always available to help with my bike problems…air in tires…chain repair…. And remember the time I jumped the fence and the cuff of my pants got caught on the fence spike and i dangled there for what seemed like 2 hours before Roy came and pulled me offf the fence!!will be thinking of you today and in my prayers.
