Condolences for the family of “Roxy Buxton Sheldon”

You and your mom have always held a very close spot in my heart. From the time that we were little until adulthood. Through all of our softball and cheerleading years, Foxy Roxy was always there. Never missing a beat. She was the heart of Hillandale Sports Association. She was a second mom to me and so many more and helped to mold us into the fine men and women we are today. She was a very special and classy lady. I just want you to know that her battle was long and hard, but she made it with your help. You did so much and took so much of your life and put it on hold to take care of her and she always knew it and I know underneath the disease she was screaming thank you. I love you and if you need anything I am here.

I am so sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. She was my mom’s dearest friend in high school and maid of honor in my mother’s wedding (Kathleen Kenyon). I enjoyed talking to Roxy in 2007 after my mom passed and sharing memories with her.
