    I was a busy single mother so my treasured social time over coffee with Roma and Paul was that . . . treasure. Roma seemed to have a word of encouragement along the way. All this in slippers and a robe which reflected the Clyde Hill neighborhood “back in the day”. Great neighbors and friends for a lot of years. I will remember them always along with paintbrushes and watercolors and looking forward to the next trip.
    And, the last one you have now taken Roma.
    God’s eternal blessing, Patty

    Roma was always a friend and made all of our South Eugene High School Class of 62, days better. She was always a friend to all and in her quiet way made us all feel like a better person. I, and all of us who knew her will miss her and wish her family the strength to cope with the loss. May God Bless Her in her new journey.
    Preston, Class of “62” SEHS
