I remember hearing about Roxie's car accident on Ward Parkway around 2:00 AM a long, long time ago ! Although I wasn't what could be considered a close friend I remember how sad I felt that she was gone SO very, very young ! I remembered that Roxie liked to have a good time and I assumed that caught up with her that tragic night ! Remember what they say about "assume" ? I felt a GREATER sense of loss when I heard that she was hit by a car that had run through a red light, she didn't seem to be in any way at fault, and there was apparently no evidence of or at least any mention of any substance abuse or influence ! I still feel SO sad about her passing - way, way too young ! Does anyone who knew her better remember the date ?

Yea she was a beautiful, fun, happy girl. I was dating her around that time and was shattered when I heard about this. She was sorely missed and changed me, my behavior and many other things about how I carried myself from that point forward.

Yes and unfortunately we all lost way to many so early from unforseen occurances and the war. Whenever I have driven by the school I think of her and all the others who have also passed.

Roxie was a beautiful, fun loving girl that I remember had a delightful laugh!! She was always up for anything that was going to be a good time. She wouldn't want to go to a movie that would 'bring her down' or make her cry... too fun loving was Roxie. It was rare to not see a smile on her face as she walked (or rushed) through the halls of school.  I enjoyed being with her often on the North Side of the School, at parties and wherever else we would find ourselves.  She was one I could count on.
