    Roland touched me and the other employees at Wilson’s in such a special way. I pray for the entire family. Roland was a strong and kind man. I pray for God’s comfort – it gives me peace to know Roland is not in pain or suffering. He is in a place where there is no more pain. And he my dad are laughing about old times. Roland I know you will be missed so much by all your family and friends. But know that you inspired so many. God Bless
