Dear Anne, Missy, and Family: I have thought of Mr. Roe so many times over the years and so often recently. I regret that I didn't call last week when I had him on my mind. He was always so kind to me, and we enjoyed our times together on the bleachers watching the boys play ball. I will remember him with that great smile on his face...and the pecans he often gifted us! Prayers, condolences, and love from all my boys, too: Jerry Jr, Jerry III, William, and Lisa Conyer

Pop was and forever will be the most supportive, loving, funny, and consistent grandfather and friend. He always showed up to every sporting event screaming “SAY-RUH” from the stands, and I looked forward to hearing it each time. I will miss his huge hugs and that contagious smile/ spirit. I love and miss him very much. It gives me comfort knowing he will be the best guardian angel over all of you. Sending prayers and comfort to all of you who loved him so much 🤍
