My name is Evelyn. I work in EVS at the Foley Center and that is where I met Roy. He was such a pleasurable man to talk to each day and I enjoyed working with him. My heart goes out to each of you during this difficult time. I just wanted to express my sympathy for your loss and let you know I will keep each of you in my thoughts and prayers.
