    The Roach family has such happy and warm memories of Big Moma...For the past 5 years or so we would travel to Georiga from New Jersey to Tony and Debbie's home...When we got there arrival we would put our laugage down and go to Big Moma's apartment to let her know we had arrived...I would sit right in front of the candy dish located on the coffee table...Big Moma would respond to my seat choice by saying "Have Some"...I'd give a hardy chuckle because she knew with out me asking my hearts desire...and that's a Mother's love with a big heart...Thank you Big Moma for knowing and loving all your children near and far ...close and wide...state to state... We love you, Marco Zanzel and Vaniah
