My memory of Mrs Roach is she would tell me the stories behind some of her photos. What a beautiful lady. My heart goes out to the family, especially Mr Roach.

Jimmy, just want to offer my condolences on the passing of your Mother. She was a beautiful lady. The last time I saw her was at my dad's (Warren Gilliam) funeral over 9 years ago. The memory I have is dad would pick her some mornings on his way to work at the Motor Pool at Fort Hood. May God comfort and strengthen you and your family during this sad time.

With Sympathy,
Suzie Gilliam Sommerfeld
