LindaRoy and I were in the same class in highschool and played football together. I was sitting home,in 1955, working on my motorcycle after graduating from HS and Roy came by and said lets join the Army Airborne. So off we went. We went through basic training together and then to Fort Cambell Ky to the 11th Airborne. We were split up, he went to a rifle company and I was assigned to a weapons company, so we didn't get to see much of each other from then on.I got out of the army and went on to school to obtain a chemical engineering degree and Roy, as you know, made a career in the service of his country. We lost touch until the HS reunion put us back in contact.I sure wanted to sit down and visit with him as I would have loved to have him tell me about his life and you and the children. But it wasn't to be!I know you must miss him very much and if there is anything I can do let me know.If you are ever in Houston, the wife and I would love to take you to dinner.RegardsTony713-782-1314

Linda,Before I met you and Roy, I admired and looked up to you both because of your very obvious faith and love for our Lord.Meeting you both has been a gift, and I will remember Roy's kindness to me in my prayers from now on. He has been a source of inspiration to me and I am grateful for having known him in this life. May God's grace be with you.
