    Writing this makes me want to cry, so I will not write what I am truly want to say. But nevertheless, Thank you Royce for showing me the meaning of unconditional love…You will always live in me, yes, live in my memories, yes, live in my soul, and yes, yes, yes, genuinely; authentically live in my heart. I there not to let go of your words, Yes, I will live, just as you told me too, I will always remember that no matter what comes my way to pray about it, for this too shell past.

    It look me a long time to believe that he was gone, yet still had so much life and love to give…I am now understanding why every thing end up the way it did. Yet still can not and will not let go of who Royce was to me. How he was there in time I needed family most, how he look out for me and love me like I was his son. the trip we taken, and the laugh, how I used to get him upset toward me, yet could not for to long. how he prayed and fasted for me. The time we worked together, the lunch times we had and dinner we went too. Wow, I said, how came a man who is not my father care for me the way he did. let me stop here I feel like I am going to cry!!!

    Royce was my Foster Dad. He treated me with love and respect. This hurts but I know he is in a much better place now
