Craig just turned 22 yesterday! And today you would have 54. I couldn't help but think about you all week, and all that you've missed here with us. We miss you, Roy, and we love you so. Happy heavenly birthday.

I’m thinking about you, even more so lately. Our baby is turning 21 tomorrow. I don’t know where the time has gone. It feels like a lifetime ago that I saw your face. I miss you. I know that Craig misses you, and we wish with everything that you could have been here with us. to see him, and be with him. I know you’d be so proud of him, like I am. He’s so kind, Roy, just like you. I wonder what you were like at 21 and wish you were here to talk and laugh and see all of this … I love you so and I miss you man. You were the best man I’ve ever known only 2nd to our Craig.

17 years have gone by so fast. I didn't think I would make it, honestly, and I never would have dreamed that I'd ever heal or be so happy again. Tonight I send my love and gratitude out to Roy, and the young woman I was, and for the strength that carried me through...Seeing our Craig, and feeling so proud of who is today is the most beautiful thing I've ever known.
#276 never forgotten ❤ forever ❤

Last night I sat with my partner and held the hand of his brother while he took his last breath. I can't help but think of you right now, and on the anniversary of your death day at that. Some how you prepared me for this....15 years have gone by so fast and yet it still feels like a life time ago that I saw your face. I miss you so much. Craig is a teenager now and I can't help but think how he would be different with you around. His Father. There is a hole in his heart that will never be filled. There is a whole in mine too. Life moves on ...I'm in love again, but I will never stop thinking of you. I see you everywhere...#276....forever loved and missed and never forgotten.

It's that time of year again.... Celebrating yours and Craig's birthdays and soon your death day. So many things have changed in these past 15 years, but one thing remains the same. ...we miss you everyday....we think about you nonstop, and we wonder what our lives would be like if things were different....We miss you so much. I wish you were here to ecperience Craig growing into a man. He's such a good human being. You'd be so proud...I know you'd be so proud of the man he's becoming.
So many things we could have done....Happy Birthday to you, wherever you are. You are loved and you are so missed. #276 forever in our hearts and always on our minds.

Merry Christmas. This year we received messages from your former military buddies and it filled us up. They had such kind words to say about you... we miss you. Craig wishes he could have met the man their talking about! But I know, even in the short time that we were together, who you were. Please continue to watch over us in the new year. We love you. We miss you and we pray for you every morning and every night. Love you.

Its a brand new year but still we're reminded of what we're missing without you here! Craig is growing up and becoming a little man. We miss you so much Roy. It seems like everyone you left went to their own corner. I'm trying to believe that's how its suppose to be, but I know, for sure, that you would have wanted your son to be part of your family. Or maybe not...I know I'm a little crazy but I can feel you.. And see you in him.Thank you. We love you and miss you so much.

Roy was a fine man and a superb soldier. He was a member of my platoon of the 284th MP Co. in Frankfurt, Germany and was my driver and gunner while in Iraq. The country has lost one of its heroes and will never have the benefits he would have blessed us with. My condolences to his family and friends and my my sorrow to his son that will never personally know the man I knew. God Bless.
