    Marilyn, I was saddened to hear of Roy’s passing. He was nice guy and we all enjoyed seeing him when he delivered repairs and alterations to Snowhite. We always shared a chuckle, as he was usually accompanied by a grand child who was goofing around and looking around the store. I have a lot of good memories of you and Roy, and I will be thinking of you, Steve, Brian and your family in the coming days. So very sorry for your loss, I pray that God will send comfort to you, take care. RIP Roy. Veronica
