ROXY MCLEOD

Despite the cold, snowy weather, family and friends gathered at Cook’s chapel this past Saturday to say farewell to this beloved lady who loved her family immensely. Her legacy will live on in all those she knew and loved.

A journey in life,
And a family’s love,
An angel among us,
In the skies above.

Her Life Honoured.
