Aunt Betty and Family, my memories of Uncle Roy was kind, soft spoken man who was dedicated to his wife and children. The family gatherings at Grandmama Collins house were treasured memories because of the love each showed to one another. Uncle Roy was a very good Christian man who always greeted me with kindness and respect. I am so proud to have a wonderful Uncle like him. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Michael, Chris, Jimmy, Mark and all your family. Love you and God be with you all! Richard A. Ray
