    My heart is heavy but full of gratitude…. This is the man that blessed and baptized me… I will be eternally grateful for all that he was and is.. I look forward to our meeting again in future days! My love to all of you!

  • I loved Royce and Joyce. They were my across the street neighbors for 12 years. Since his sweet wife Joyce passed away, I have visited with Royce often. He was always fun to visit with and had a good story to share every time I visited with him. I miss Royce’s smiling face in the garage across the street.
