Janet, I am so sorry to hear about your husband,Royce passing,you have our sympathy and ours prayers.Though Royce is no longer with you and the family his memory will aways be there.Similarly,Christ Jesus said"Do not marvel at this,because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out"(John 5:28,29).Our loved ones that are sleeping in the graves,in God's memory will be back in the resurrection to live life free from sickness,pain,sorrow and death(Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:3-5).

Janet, Royce was a real professional who knew his job and was fair to all, even when they did not agree. His humor, his uncanny ability to get royals, and his putting stroke will be greatly missed by those who worked with him and knew him. Our sympathy to your family.
