Dear Family, We are so sorry to hear of Roy’s passing. We know the family is hurting during this time. We know his funeral would have been a lot more, if it had not been for this virus. We have known him over thirty years and have always thought the world of him. We know his health had really declined, especially these past couple of years. Our hearts are broken for his family. We know all of you were so close to him. He has always seem so kind and warm to everyone. We know his sufferings are now over. The bible says, “To Be Absent From This Body is to Be Present With The Lord”. We have that promise. Family, please remember this is not goodbye, “Only Goodnight”… and we will see him again on that eternal day. Family our continual prayers are with all of you. Love and Prayers, Linda and Tommy Rice

To the entire Murrau Family, Alan & I are so very sorry to hear of Roy’s passing. I thought a lot of him & your Mother. I think of all the memories I have of your Dad, those of the Chevron at Thornton and I-20 rank pretty high, but I will never forget the Summer he brought a truck load of Silver Queen corn fresh out of his Family’s garden in South Georgia & my Mana buying about 100 dozen from him. I shucked corn until I thought my arms would fall off, but it was THE best corn. We send our love & we pray that our Heavenly Father wraps each of you in His loving arms and comforts you during your loss. Alan & Linda (Stroud) Sewell Douglasville
