    Aww, Cindy. You and Roy lived explanatory lives, and along the way taught me and many others what love and compassion you had for others and yourself as a "team": by helping others, assisting people to learn the process of growth and happiness, you gave and received so much more back exactly what we were taught. Roy will be missed. At this time the wound is fresh to all the friends who knew him, and you, Cindy, the one who was left behind to mourn your loss. May the grief process be one that you have learned that God will lead the way for you, through the help of your friends, the knowledge that you have sought through the years, and the blessings of God, which will bring you strength that you have always possessed. Our hearts just were not ready for Roy to leave us, and we will surely be thinking and praying for you, and for all of us friends who loved Roy and miss him, along with continual and heartfelt prayers for the emptiness we feel and the loss of your man, whom you fought so hard to keep, because Roy was a keeper.
