    Marie, my heart goes out to you as I too know the sorrow of losing a son. I did not know Roy but one of my sons knew him as part of the snowmobile community and he attended the Memorial Service recently. I’ve watched the service on line and was emotionally touched by the tributes given and photos of his life. Roy’s life will live on in the hearts of all who were privileged to have known him.
