Roy was part of the Shasta Abbey sangha - very nice man. I spoke with him only once or twice & wish I had gotten to know him better.
SA's website shows a memorial service scheduled for February 25th at the Abbey, 3:30 pm. The obituary notice says 3:00, just fyi.
I'm thinking of Roy's family, especially his youngest son who wasn't very old when I last saw him; he might be 12 or 13 now? Too young to lose a parent.
Blessings to Roy. http://www.mtshastanews.com/obituaries/x370664600/Obituary-Roy-Lambert
