Royal was such a beautiful lady that I feel honored to have gotten to know and care for. She was always happy and had that beautiful smile on her face. We will very much miss her!

Warmest sympathy to your family in this time of your loss. The Bible gives us hope at revelation 21:3,4 “God…will wipe out every year from their eyes, and death will be no more.”

An angel to all who were Blessed enough to meet her. She shared her warm, welcoming smile with her daughters. Royal’s legacy lives on as we wear the SMILE she exemplified.
A prayer for ‘a Herd of Angels’ to family and friends.
Thank you God for sharing an angel here on earth.

Royal was very special to me. I remember all the years she devoted her time, talent and Tithes to High St. Church. I learned from her how to be dedicated to the Ministry.

I will miss her but I will always cherish the fond memories I have.

She was just sweet, sweet, sweet and loving.

This was an ANGLE sent from GOD, to the FAMILY she loved so much keep trusting in GOD, Royal did just that Royal trusted GOD. The storm is out over the ocean it’s headed your way if you’re not anchored in JESUS you will surely slip away. MOTHER, Royal your storm is over and I know you did believe John 3:16, every lasting life is yours to have. My friend I will always have a place in my heart for you. Loving you always Mother Royal Scott.
