I worked with Roma at McDonald.s in Bozeman, MT for a short time. SHe worked many years with my mom and they became special friends and Mom often talks about the times they had together. Roma stayed in touch with Mom after she moved and Mom retired. She truly was an wonderful lady and I know you will all miss her, May God grant you all peace and comfort during this time and be with you as you all adjust to life without her. I know she will be greatly missed.
