    I remember Roy as a good-natured, gentle, hardworking man of integrity. He and Jackie made our times visiting with Heidi for weekends away from college so much fun. I know God is happy to have Him around now! I am so sorry for your loss, though, and you’re in my thoughts and prayers.

    I know this is very hard for the family. Once, Jackie, You reminded me this is what we live our whole life for. I know Roy will be greatly missed but how wonderful to know his pain and suffering is over and now he can be in peace.

    I really enjoyed working with Roy for about 20 years. He was always in a great humor and a great guy to work with. I know he will be missed by family and friends. We will be praying for Jackie and Heide . Our thoughts are with you both during this time of grieving. May God comfort you through the years to come.

    I remember Mr Roy as a gentle and good-natured man who welcomed a swarm of silly college students into his home for the weekend. He truly endured to the end and now a crown of righteousness awaits him for a life well-lived. Imagine his delight when he hears the words well done, good and faithful servant! My condolences to the Pickett Family as you try to come to terms with this profound loss. God is with you each step of the way, and my prayers and love accompany you always.
