Hi Sherry,
We are so sorry for you and your family. RD was always so nice and so jovial whenever we talked over the backyard fence. He always had a smile and fun little story about the squirrels and birds. We are thinking about you.

Royce was a loyal and special friend for over 50 years. So many of our good memories are of the times spent with him and Sherry. Feel so blessed to recently have spent some time with them and some of his other Iowa friends. He will be sadly missed. We lift his family in our prayers.---Steve and Susanne Cooper
