Dental care is so important to heart health. The more bacteria the blood stream ingests, the more it poses a risk to the heart, lungs, etc...
Poor dental hygiene, can lead to heart disease.

Roy reminded me of an old west character. Rod his horse hard, lived hard, did what he said he would do. Didn't exist for others to like him. He was a man's man. Will miss him!
