Great Uncle Roy

I learned on Tuesday evening that my Great Uncle Roy Lee Wells had passed away.

I feel very fortunate that I was able to spend time with him in Baltimore in July. He had travelled from California to Baltimore, MD to pay a visit to his twin brother's grave in Arlington National Cemetary. His brother Coy is my grandfather. Along with other family, I was able to journey from Georgia to Maryland and visit with Roy for a couple brief days.

I have only met Roy on one other occasion in my memory: at my Aunt Mary Jane's wedding. It is likely we met when I was a toddler or child, but I have no such memories.

The files below are audio recordings I made during my visits with Roy at John's house. The recordings are of various lengths and I'll fill in details at a later time. Included are Roy, his wife Peggy, his brother Bob, his foster brother John and his wife Beverly, his nephew (Coy's son) Jeff, my grandmother (Coy's first wife), and myself.

There's no guarantee of what is or is not recorded here :)
It's all raw and unfiltered.
You have my permission to copy these files and back them up as desired.
