    Joan and I met Roy and Genevieve many years ago while Joan took painting lessons from Genevieve. They were both great people!
    We’d like to offer our deepest sympathy on the death of Roy.

    Due to unforeseen circumstances I can’t personally pay my respects today. I want to express my sympathy and let you know you are in my thoughts. As sad as the moment is, the fact that you had him for so many years should be a comfort.

    I remember riding the 51 Pearl Rd. bus with Roy & others. We had a good time, and it served the purpose of making time pass quickly! He was a great guy–sorry he had to leave us at 87. I’m 83 now, and know I don’t have long to go–still miss my C.E.I. friends (and Jenny too).

    I’m going to miss seeing Mr. Smolik sitting on the front porch on summer evenings. My condolences to the Smolik family on their loss from a long-time neighbor.
