  2. Our world is forever changed with the loss of Uncle Roy! Loved him the first time I met him at Grandma’s house. Funny, full of laughter, a hugger, so sweet and all around good man. His battle is over and I agree with all the posts, he is resting in Heaven. Catching up with his Maker, his Parents, His wife, Barbara, and both his Sisters who went before him.
    My heart is broken with his loss. I am sending all my thoughts and prayers to, Cynthia, Kristen, and Trampus, all of his brothers, nieces, nephews, and all of his friends.
    All my love to you all, Mills Family.
