Hi, I got to your blog through 2996 tribute page. The reason I chose your tribute to read is because Roy Wallace was my BIL's (well, not quite BIL because he's my sister's boyfriend), and my SIL's (my brother's girlfriend) uncle. We are from Santiago, Chile, really far away, and yet the world is so small that I'm really close to Roy's family (I didn't get to know him though). Thank you for your tribute, thank you for remembering him!
