    Alroy brings back good memories of the past for me. I first met him as a friend of my Mom & Dad’s
    and as my Grandpa Ben and Grandma Pauline’s neighbor. I know everyone will miss him but his old friends will be greeting him in paradise. Love and sympathy to you all especially his beautiful wife Betty!
