When I heard the news today, my mind went racing back 30 years ago when we tragically lost another much-loved family member. I am comforted in knowing that no one will be alone during this time. The Hauke's do a great job of supporting each other through the bad and good times. I found Psalm 34:18 to be encouraging: The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. My prayer is that God will begin tonight healing all the broken hearts.

Love,
Melissa

To the wonderful family of an amazing guy, our hearts ache for you all & we hope all of the powerful prayers you are receiving from a town that has joined together in this time of need can help you through this difficult tragedy. Royce was, still is, and always will be loved and missed by all.(Cassie-) He was far to young and taken from us too soon, I have never met someone with such a big heart, and beautiful smile. I only had the blessing of knowing him for 4 years, and in those 4 years never had I ever seen him in a bad mood, never a negative person, and always so concerned with everyone else. A great pleasant young guy to be around, so much talent and potential. So sad to lose such an amazing guy. I see the love of my life torn to pieces over this and cannot imagine what the Hauke family is dealing with right now. I hope you all can stay strong and join together with our small town to get through this.

Richard, Arlene, Kenny, Beth and Family:

I am so sorry to learn of Royces' passing. I think the last time I seen him was at the Emery Family Reunion in 2005. He had such a beautiful smile and the look in his eyes was full of trouble. He sure did look and act a lot like his Dad.

I pray that he is at rest and visiting with the rest of the family - some that he had never met. I know that he was carried to Heaven by the Angels that they are now watching over his family.

All of my love and prayers will be with you. God Bless and Keep you all in His embrace in the coming days.

Love to all,

Jim & Connie Emery Miller

I met Royce when I was employed by US Bank in Sardinia. The first time I met him I was so impressed with his good manners and his maturity at such a young age. I remember thinking to myself...when my son grows up I hope he has the qualities I saw in Royce! It was so obvious to me and everyone that knew Royce that he was a great person & would make any parent proud to call him their own. To his family: I will be praying for you all! Right now nothing anyone says will bring any comfort to you but please know that Royce is still with you in spirit. Come together now as a family & share stories about him, cry, laugh, and help each other during this difficult time. Sardinia is a small town & everyone loved Royce...he was special/unique..he was who he was because of you all...his family. Prayers to you all from Kennesaw, Georgia. ~Christina Blythe

In loving memory, I offer my sincere condolences to Royce Hauke's family and all of his friends as he will be missed. Royce and I went to school together from Jr. High to High School, and I have learned from him that everybody has a place in this world. It is very sad for me, as well as everybody that knew Royce, to think that his place has changed now. It lightens the sadness I feel when I think about how he has touched and helped so many people. His memory will live within us. RIP Royce Hauke.

Dear Kenny & Beth,
Words cannot express how lost we feel. We grieve with you. We have loved Royce with all our love. We will forever be indebted to him for the love and memories he gave to us. Our love & prayers go out to all of the family. Know that we wish that we could be with you at this time but distance won't allow that. Remember we will be with you in prayer and spirit. John 14:1-2 says "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God"; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you...
The Lord will grant us the peace and healing we seek at this time. God be with you.

We live at a distance but feel some of the loss that you feel - having enjoyed so much more contact with Royce yourselves. We will have Mass offered here at St. Mary in Fredericksburg, Virginia. We''ll add our daily Rosary together for Royce and his family.

We''ll be asking the Lord-Almighty and All-loving to be mindful of the love and positive spirit Royce spread.

Our deepest sympathies to the entire Hauke family...... although I never met Royce, he just sounds like he was a beautiful spirit. Speak of him often, remember all the good times, laugh, cry and always hold him closest to your heart for he will always be there for you. We lost our daughter just over a year ago, these losses are so painful and different for each family but we understand the deep pain and loss you have. Keep your faith strong and when you think nothing else helps.... your faith and your strong family will somehow pull you through.... it did for us. We will keep your family in our prayers.

I know Royce through Vince, Vince is my cousin, so every summer I spent with Vince, Alanna and Garret I basically spent with Royce as well since Royce and Vince were unseperable! Royce was always at almost every gathering at Vince's house and he was the life of the party! Royce will be so very missed by many in the Hawkins family. Rest In Peace Royce.
