Oh, Judy & Jane and Families: So saddened over the loss of your 'Bubba.' George & I grew up with Charles Roy and were good friends as well as cousins. He and George kept Aunt Emma very busy with lots of their "mischief, pranks & misdeeds"!! With memories of our younger days and happier times together, I keep you all in my prayers. With deepest sympathy and love always, Ronnie & Family
