    I Pray God Is With You And Your Family In This Time Of Sorrow And Sadness Roxann Deeply Loved Her Family And Spoke Often Of You When We Worked Together At The Hospital. She Would Talk About How Amazing Her Husband Was From The Very Beginning And You Could See The Love And Devotion She Had For Him In Her Eyes. She Also Spoke Often Of Her Girls Who She Was So Very Proud Of And The Fun They Had Activities You Would Do Togethe Etc. And Loved Her Grandchildren To The Ends Of The Earth. She Truly Was An Amazing Woman Full Of Life And Energy And Always Willing To Help No Matter How Busy She Was. She Is Loved And Will Be Missed By Many She Offered Me A Lot Of Insight That Had Truly Changed My Life And How I See Things I’ll Never Forget Her Or Her Words Of Wisdom. God Bless You All And May You Remember All The Happy Times Shared And Celebrate The Wonderful Time We All Had Her, The Lord Took This Angel Far Too Soon, She Will Be Watching Over All Of You In Days Weeks And Years To Come Guiding You Through Even The Toughest Of Times.
    With Deepest Sympathy And Great Love, Nicole, Allen, And Kyle

    I am so sad to hear of Roxann’s passing. I worked with her for many years at Helen’s Kitchen. My mother would tell me when she ran into Rox at the store. Rox would ask about me and if I was married…she wanted to be invited to the wedding!! My heart goes out to your family, Rox. You were very special.
