My sincere condolences on the loss of Roy. I’m a hospice volunteer and I visited him often when I was allowed into the-places he stayed. We shared memories of my grandparents, George and Lillian Deaton who lived on Roxbury St.. I lived on Bath St. and his parents allowed myself and siblings to cut through their yard every morning on the way to school. That made our walk much shorter. Roy and I enjoyed each other’s company.
Prayers for you all.
