Dear Cousin

What a wonderful person Roy was to whoever he met. I was a city boy, Roy a country boy. He taught how to gig a frog, clean a chicken, and provided updates on UK basketball. I always looked forward to seeing Roy at our family gatherings. We would joke about how good or bad the St. Louis Cardinals were compared to the Cincinnati Reds. I loved this man, please know me and my family are lifting you all up in pray. God bless, Rob Gaddie

To the family of Roy Gaddie,

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I went thru high school with Roy and we graduated together. A finer man no where. He was always soft spoken and help others. My our Lord find peace for your family and ease your hearts thru the times ahead. The chain is broken now, but will link again.
