Roxy will always be remembered for her love of Italian food, and for her voracious desire to cover her wrists and fingers with baubles and bangles. She loved to watch Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! In all the years that Roxy was with us, she had a chance to experience good things in life. She took exciting vacations, received her Holy Confirmation and Communion with the help of the nuns and priests at St. Gregory Barbarigo Parish. She went to school, had a job, loved crafts and participated in the Special Olympics.
