    Bobby Roe was the most kindest, most patient and friendly man and Brother Mason I have ever known. Truly! an officer and a gentleman. He always took the time to help a friend when needed. Our Fraternity now has an empty place which can never be filled but only remembered with honor. Lord, embrace Bobby safely in your care for he is a keeper.
