Dear Debbie and Family,

Please accept our condolences on the passing of Roy. You and your family will be in my prayers and know that God has taken Roy home. You and your mom need to come back and visit at Falls Lake with Sharon and me. We will talk about Roy and your family and just laugh and eat and stay up late. Well, as late as Sharon can stay up. She has kept me up to date on Roy and I put him on my prayer lists right away. God has answered our prayers.

Take care of yourself and your family,

I wish you all God’s peace and grace,

Gail Blackwell

Debbie, Betsy, Corey, John, Aunt Anna and Dale,

I would like to express how deeply sorry we are to hear of the sudden loss of Roy. When we heard one week ago of the upsetting report, we took it right to prayer. We now pray that you may find comfort in each other and with all of the friends that love you. It has been some time since I have seen Roy and I will always remember how much he loved life and how he loved to laugh. I always enjoyed seeing how Roy, Dale, Sue, Aunt Anna and Uncle Bob interacted with each other. What a wonderful family. May we all be comforted in understanding that Roy is truly at home now. Blessings to the Davis family. Love Joe and Patti Hora and family

On behalf of my wife Susan and myself please accept our heart felt condolences on your recent loss of your loved one. Roy and I played in our first band together as teenagers. He was a great musician then too. He also had a great smile and great sense of humor. He will be greatly missed. Our love and prayers are with your family at this time of loss. The Motley family.
