I will always remember Sis. Roxie for her beautiful voice and smiling face. She always had a kind word on her lips and a gentle hug to give. So thankful for precious memories and the promise of that glad reunion day! - There will be a happy meeting in Heaven we know, when we see the many loved ones we've known here below; gathered on the blessed hilltops with hearts all a glow, that will be a glad reunion day!
