|I considered Mr. Roman McKinney a Friend. He delivered lumber to us many times.
I bought one of my favorite pickup trucks from him. It was a 1963 C10 Chevy, 4 speed Munsey and a Great 283 small block engine. Smooth and Strong, just like Roman was! I last spoke to him 3 weeks ago at the Milligan Post Office, he will be missed!!
|We are so sorry for your loss. Roman was a very
nice man and we talked almost every Friday when
we delivered his weekly Meal On Wheels. He will
be greatly missed.
