  1. Roy was a lovely man, always very welcoming with a smile and a story. He had an interest in everything and was so easy to chat with.
    We loved his company and will miss him.

  2. Fond memories of Sundays visiting the Nicklins when we used to visit our parents. Roy and all his family are lovely.
    Love Don, Dot Gail and Lynne Bourne
