    Brent, I’m Roy Duncan. I lived in the yellow frame house across the road from Darryl Murphy. We talked a few times when you would go down the gravel road to Ray Matherne’s house behind me. I saw you a few times at Brian’s supermarket and we would chat. I just wanted to convey my heartfelt condolences to you and your family over the loss of your dad. I’ve been praying for your family. I know y’all take solace in knowing he is reunited with your sister Shari in heaven. God bless and comfort you and your family and friends.
