It's been a while now, but my candles were going crazy after the service that I missed, so sorry I missed the service for him. We started msn after so many years apart no contact at all, it was so nice the memory I keep, is him in a light blue muscle shirt and that beautiful smile I will always remember and gives me energy to keep beleiving., he is there just beleive. Hope the whole family is there and will always keep good memories of ROlly, he was such an extradonary person, so optimistic and doing everything he could for his children. Hope they appreciate that and remember that. Not every parent is like that. Finaly deleted him from my msn that was weird, its like he is still there and will answer. Not easy. Hope the family, Swan, Maman dearest, Kristal and Robbie are doing good, and I am wishing all my best.

Dear Kristal and Robbie,

I'm so sorry for your loss, your dad was an amazing man and shall never be forgotten. You guys were so lucky to have such a wonderful, funny, outgoing, sweet and loving father.
His memory will stay with us forever.

With love,

Give him a hug and a great big kiss
because one day,he will greatly be missed.

I never knew last year was the last day I could say
I love you Dad! Happy Father's Day!

All I have now are great memories, eyes full of tears,
and to remember his love throughout the years.

Please remember to thank the Lord above,
for the father he gave you with so much love.

The sun came up this morning;
it wasn't very bright.
My dark mood casts a shadow;
it's hard to see the light.

We all have just one father, and now that his life on earth is done,
the emptiness and loss I feel
makes it hard to see the sun.

Tomorrow is a brand new day;
may the pain and sadness lighten.
I will remember all his love,
and then the sky will brighten.

Roland aujourd'hui jeudi le 5 janvier 2006, 10:10 a.m. Rest assured I will never forget someone that was so special that I cared for and loved so deeply. There will always be an empty space in my heart. I promise that one the sisters will always carry on with your legacy of getting the family together on Christmas and New Year's. I will greatly miss our evening chats on MSN.

Love Forever Helene

My deepest sympathy to Kristal and Robbie, who he cherished and meant the world to him. He was so proud of you two. His heart belonged to you and he will watch over you. To his friend and sister Helene who was always there for him in his time of sorrows and pain. To all of his family my sympathy. I have beautiful memories of Roland. He is now on the other side with no pain and sorrows, just glowing.
Love Sue

I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to all of Roland's family. It was with great sadness that I learned of his passing and suffering. There is a saying that goes like this: "The good die young" and I think it is appropriate in this case. Keeping you in my prayers and wishing you all strength and courage during this time of mourning.

Thinking of you

Dear Rolly,

Some how a world without you seems lonely. It's heartwarming to know you are at peace and in heaven with your other loved ones.

Your kindness and generousity to family and friends are what made you such a special man in our hearts. We'll always remember how your smile and humour lit up many a room. I'll especially miss all your 'Rolly' compliments!

You will be deeply missed...

To his immediate family and to us, the remaining sisters, let us not forget the excruciating pain he suffered for the last 3 years and the big fight he put up to stamp it. Let us remember that Roland always had someone by his side during his times of trial and suffering. His strength was unsurmountable and his love for his family was unconditional. He is no longer in pain and is looking down upon us. I can hear his sound of relief from being released from the atrocious pain. We all love you dearly Roland and we will never forget you. I will miss our late night internet card games and our MSN chats.
