  1. Ruth,

    I am so sorry to hear about Roy. He was not only an amazing man but also a very
    true gentleman. Mother Earth will truly
    miss his presence. I look for comfort in
    the belief of love’s everlasting connection. May that love lift you and hold
    you close, and give you peace. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Please let me know if there is anything, absolutely anything, I can do. God
    Bless You.

    With Love,

    Sharleen J. Lamaak
