He was a fun loving man that didn't judge people by their status or was critical of others . He didn't even let me know that he had a terminal illness , needless to say he didn't complain . I had the joy of sharing time laughing and joking with him and my good friend Brew which told me I was in the family, and I will dearly miss my brother . Until we meet again Roy , you are with us ;)
