Dear Dalton Family
My heartfelt condolences to you for your loss. Roy was a good friend and fellow guardsman. I worked with Roy while employed by the National guard in Anderson Missouri He was very intelligent and a quick study of the computers when they first arrived at work. He caught on very quickly and taught others as well. Always pleasant and a vicious ping pong player! I wish I could have made it to visitation but the flooding here has made that impossible. I will miss him and his big smile. Rest in Peace Roy
