I have known Roy for over 35 years. He was an amazing man who could thread a needle and test a wire to see which one was hot. I have babysit his children. I have been at his home many a times. I have cooked at his home and made many a memories. Roy loved God and his friends and families knew it. Roy would sing for the Lord. I am so glad I had meet Roy and Marlene.

Had Mr. Walters as a teacher at Kennedy School, really nice guy. He also sang at my uncle's funeral service - what an awesome voice he had! Rest in peace, Mr. Walters.
