Phil Royal Legacy

3 years ago today July 18, 2016 at 10am right after finishing the 24th mile on day 1 of the Key Training Center Run for the Money, doing what you loved. The lord had another plan, you left us here on earth but you have never left our hearts. There’s not a day that goes by that Myself, Brelyn, Family, Friends, First Responders and this community don’t think about you and the impact that you left on all of us. 💙💛 I pray everyday that we make you proud and that we will always carry on your Legacy and never be forgotten. You are our biggest Angel watching over all of us. We love and miss you unconditionally.

-Love April and Brelyn❤️❤️
