  • My deepest sympathies to the entire family on the passing of your dear Roly. Roland was one of a kind. Content, happy, sincere and the best sense of humour. Between telling jokes and singing songs he quickly filled up the hearts of all of us who came in to help take care of him these past few years. He will be fondly remembered by us all. So sad that he is no longer here with his loved ones but thankful that he is free from his earthly pains. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. - Posted by: Leslie Candy (Home care and friend ) on: Mar 05, 2019
