    I had the pleasure in working with Roxanne st Mosaic. Roxanne was such a pleasure to be around. She always had a beautiful smile. She would tell staff “You go home”. She always loved looking around at her house mates and staff. Roxanne was truly an amazing person. She loved her dominoes. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. God surely gained a beautiful Angel!

    I was Roxie’s brother-in-law. I have known her for over 50 years and I just loved being around her. She was always smiling and she put smiles on a lot of people’s faces-including mine. I loved her with all of my heart. I know I will see her again. God Bless you my little sister-in-law and friend.
