To the Hummer family,
Roy was a really good person. I always enjoyed their company when they greeted me at the restaurant. My condolences to the family.

Roy and Ginny had a hand in "raising"many many more children than just their own. I know for me and my family they were like grandparents. All off us except Maria enjoyed the french fries with gravy all through high school. It is hard to explain how extraordinary a place Town Hall is, but knowing that some people I worked with over 35 years ago are still there says a lot about management. Rest in peace Roy, you earned it. I can see you up in Heaven driving one of your Packards with Willis, Pauline and Ginny, and that makes me happy.

To the Hummer Family. Deepest sympathies on the passing of your father. My family spent many meals at his restaurant and shared many stories and laughter with your mom and dad. The food was always great as was the company. May you feel at peace that he is now with his beloved Ginny and safe and healthy with our Heavenly Father. With fond memories, the White family, Debbie, Donna, Denise and Dori.
