Reader Remembers Late Editor/ Owner of Edgefield Daily, Roy Blackwell

web posted January 5, 2016

Dear Editor,
We who read the news especially on the Internet remembers the people we lost and remembered in 2015.

Those we remembered and loved were famous movie stars, singers, law enforcement officer's and many military men and women who gave their lives defending this country.
I express my sympathy  and pray for the family of a person I became acquainted with and truly enjoyed corresponding with.

That person who all know that reads this column is Roy Blackwell, Editor of Edgefield Daily. We corresponded often and planned to have lunch together and with his wife but his health at that time would cancel that event. I pray that the grief of Roy's family during this time of year and those who knew this wonderful man will know he is in the presence of our Lord .

I share the sorrows of his passing I loved this man for what he stood for, his unconditional love for his wife as he expressed so often in his words in Wandering Minds. We became friends in our own way and I pray God's love will give comfort to Roy's wife and family knowing he is in heaven and still in your presence. My thought's and prayers are now and always be with the Blackwell family.

God bless.
U.S. Navy CPO Retired
