My deepest prayers and love to you guys … I’m so sorry for you loss… Roy was not only a remarkable man, he was a BFF to my Dad (AJ Goldsmith) throughout my whole life and up bringing. He always had a smile and kind words to say… I will miss him dearly he was really a great person inside and outside. He worked harder than anyone I ever knew as well .. putting in many many hrs and hard labor into farming… not only was Roy there for me when I was growing up, he was there when I lost my Sister, Mother, and Father … Rest In Peace my dear friend … God Bless and comfort the family and may they not dwell but cherish the wonderful memories that Roy left in his legacy …
How well I remember Roy and his racing cars on the Dumas – Hartley highway scaring us girls all-the-way but we would go back again with them. Sonja and I were very-close friends. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others are telling you is right, wrong or indifferent. Travel the pathway ahead as our Lord tells you, pathway because there are only individual ones; not one for all. Remember, you are not orphaned if you cling tightly to His unchanging and unfailing hand. I have more fond-memories of your parents than I can list here. Class of 1959 Dumas Senior High School
Our deepest love, thoughts, and prayers are with you, Terri and each of your family. We loved your Daddy very much and we love you.
