He should have had a BY-PASS; I guess A & E doesn't provide health insurance...

Last episode of Shipping Wars--customer asks Roy, "did I give you a heart attack?" as he is paying Roy. Roy tells him to go F- himself. Totally unreal. RIP Roy. Show will suck without you.

Jennifer is my favorite (because I'm a guy), but Roy was probably the most professional and if I wanted something shipped I would have chosen him.
