Papa Roy Velt Rhea

For anyone that knew Papa Roy, you got a chance to see, hear and live the history of his 101 years of life. It was and blessing to have him come to visit Janet and I just so that he could see our first born, Anakin. It was a gift to hear that he asked about us everyday after that trip to our house. We love you Pops. And we will miss you.

The greatest person of my whole entire life has passed away at 101 years 6 months. While it should be expected, it was sudden news. Papa Roy Rhea had his mind and knowledge all the way through the end. He could remember things from his childhood and last week. His humor was always rich and quick, and you could never, ever get a joke over on him (although I did just once)!

This is going to be the worst and hardest days of my life which I have to deal with the next few days, but it is just part of what you have to deal with in life.

Prayers and good thoughts sent my way will be certainly helpful.

I put a bit of a tribute up on www.muleythemule.com last night, and likely more information will go online soon. Check that out for a nice couple words about the last day. While this kills my heart and soul, it is a good way for Papa Roy’s story to end–going to sleep on the front porch of his little house that he loved so much.

Thanks,
Kev
Be Safe, Be Happy, Be Well,
Kevin and the Mule
