My condolences to the family on the loss of Roxy. I worked with Roxy at Aetna for many years. She always was a pleasure to deal with -- knowledgeable, gracious, cheerful. In fact, she was the ideal co-worker and was respected by everyone I knew. She will be missed.

We remember how talkative Roxy was and always so friendly. We enjoyed many meals together with Roxy and Auntie Jennie. Always enjoyed talking about stock options too. One very special memory is the cruise we went on together with several other family members. Aunt Roxy, may you rest in peace! You will be missed and always hold a special place in our hearts.

Our sincerest condolences for your loss.

Love always,
Tim, Christina, John and Hunter Bagdasarian
