    The times we spent with Roxie made special memories. She was my Mother’s Euchre partner, and what joy we shared around Mother’s table. With her love she would share her family news with us. Her family was her world. The poor eyesight never stopped her from the things she loved to do with us, and we treasure each outing. We are thankful for her life, her love, her testimony as a Child of God…but she will be missed.
