There are no words to express my sincerest condolences. When I left my family in California 3 years ago and moved here, I felt especially close to Roland as a sort of surrogate father figure, even if he didn't really know it. Now I hope they have found each other and are reminiscing as they watch over us. Love and peace to his family. ❤ -Terri
