Royce and family, I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. I loved living next door to your family in the late 50’s and early 60’s.
Your momma was such a sweet and kind lady. May God put his arms around you and give you peace ❤️🙏🏻

Royce, I am sorry to hear that your mom has passed.  The news brings to mind the many stormy days Miss T was so kind to invite us inside her warm home at Clark and Main while waiting for the school bus.  I feel so happy recalling memories of special folks like Miss T and Wheatley, as well as so many other caring mentors and good citizens, and how fortunate I was to grow up on Chincoteague Island in the 50's and 60's.  May God's blessings be with all.

Royce, Sending my heartfelt sympathy and prayers in the loss of your dear Mother.  She was such a special, caring Christian lady and I know you will deeply miss her.  You were a wonderful son and looked after her until the end.  May your sweet memories give you comfort and peace.

Miss T was my next door neighbor for 40:yrs, my husband Jimmie and I couldn’t have asked for a better neighbor. She always looked out for others and made sure you had a Birthday cake of your choice for your special day.. She will be greatly missed. Sympathy to Royce and Rebecca and the rest of the family. I can truly say she was not just my neighbor but my friend and a fine Christian woman.

Royce and family- so sorry about your mother.
It was always nice to see her smiling face each time I visited Mom at the Shore Health Center.
My thoughts are with you.
