My heart and prayers go out to Roy's family and friends. Roy and I were friends for over 22 years. He was a great man. I know he is with the Lord and rejoicing with his father, mother, sister, Robert, Jody and all the others who have gone before him. God speed, my dear friend. May you find the peace and joy you so desperately wanted and needed in your life. I love & miss you, Roy.

Roy will never have to face the last enemy death, ever again. In the meantime, his acts of faith live on until he stands up alive and whole in the Paradise. Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces."
