Pallbearers carry the casket containing Phil Royal on Monday afternoon to the site where he will be buried at Hills of Rest Cemetery in Floral City. Royal, 47, died suddenly last week.
Farewell, friend

It seems Citrus County isn’t big enough to hold all of Phil Royal’s mourners.

Yet, they couldn’t stay away.

Not last Tuesday evening, when thousands lined roadways while a law enforcement escort returned Royal’s body to Inverness.

Not on Saturday, when they completed what Royal started — the final dash and walk to the Key Training Center for an emotional end to this year’s Run for the Money.
