Jean, Brian, Roberta, Tyler, Jessica and families, we send our deepest sympathy and condolence on the passing of Roxanne. We remember her as a young child when we used to visit the farm. She was always bubbling with excitement over something - quite often a newborn calf - and was always just too eager to help her dad with the animals. She is at peace now. May God bless and keep you all.
