  1. We all loved Aunt Tot and we will miss her but we’re celebrating today because she is home and in a far better place! Rest In Peace Aunt Tot until we meet again

  2. Dear Roye Family, I am deeply sorry for your loss and I would like to share an encouraging scripture with you. The scripture is found at Acts 24:15, and it speaks of a “resurrection of the righteous and the unrighteous.” Yes, there will a time when we will be able to see our loved ones again. Many find this promise from God comforting. I hope this message is a source of encouragement and comfort during this difficult time.
