Roxanne was terrific with the residents of Passavant. She took such great care of my mom as well as many, many others throughout her years there, and always went above and beyond. Now all of her family, friends, and residents that have passed are able to welcome her, show her the ropes, and help take care of her. I’m very very sorry for your loss.
I was devastated to hear about her passing. Roxanne
took care of my husband Richard for many years at
Passavant. They got along so well and she always
worked so hard and took such good care of him.
I am so sorry for your loss
I was absolutely heartbroken to hear about Roxanne’s passing. She was a wonderful caregiver and friend to my father Richard when he was at Passavant. She cared for him for 3 years and was almost like a part of our family. She will be missed by all of the staff and residents there. I am so very sorry for your loss and I’m thinking about you all during this difficult time.
