Duane always enjoyed talking with Roy, and he always spoke kindly to our children. They looked forward to the special Halloween treats he used to prepare for all the neighborhood trick-or-treaters each year. Vanessa loved playing with you, Matthew, when you were little, and now she lives next door in our old house. Know that we are sorry for your loss, and pray that you keep in touch with your father’s family. Hope to see you and your mom sometime. Love, Duane and Sheryl Roche
