    Roy was a great friend to me I’m going to miss him. I can’t help but think of all the fun and laughter we have done all through the years at the deer camp and when he built his little house and then had it moved to LAZY ACRES . He was a friend who always put his friends first. Buddy Blane was one of them whom we still miss so much. All the deer campers will surely miss him. I pray the Family is all ok and again I will miss him dearly. He will always be in my heart!!!!

    Dad…
    Today I returned to work, got there 4 hours early. Thought I could get some relief from the grief. I know you don’t want me this sad. Dad. I love you and miss you. Thank you Again Daddy for being the kind, honest, hardworking, joke telling, blue grassing Daddy you was. You was spoke of in such honor by so many of our friends. Mrs. Dixon and Denny called you dirtdauber.. ha ha but she said your dad was the exception to what the world is today, I never felt more proud as when she said that b/d you was getting the respect you deserved. Dad…I am sorry that your wishes are not getting the respect you deserve now, I only pray that you and your wished be respected, i hope God is in the hearts of those that choose… but you raised me from the time I was 4 months old and you raised me to do the right thing even when others don’t and all I needed was others to see what I already know. That you listed me as your child in your hand writing, others can deny I am your baby girl, they will answer one day. Dad I know you don’t like to see me so sad and I am really trying to get it together and carry on so dad…rest in peace no matter what is going on here on earth. Know that I cherish every memory, thousands of photos with you, and my faith in God.
    I love you, honor you, miss you and Thank you Again.
    Your baby girl…Shannon Kay
