January 21, 2017 "I sang along and shed some tears today. I always identified with Maggie's songs. I used to work in a fun little card shop on Fourth Ave called Farfetched in Manhattan and always hoped Maggie would wander in.

When I was working I'd always monopolize the music and would sometimes play The Roches. It was amazing, how different people reacted to the music, all positive.

From tough guys to blue haired grandmothers, people would remember loving the Roches or they would inquire about purchasing their music.
So thank you, Margaret A. Roche, fare thee well.
Enjoy the universe." - John Ozed (Hoboken, NJ)

I remember the magic of you and your sisters on stage, especially at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, and the huge joy you brought. Deep condolences to everyone in your family and those who knew and loved you." - Sabrina Rood (Edmonds, WA)
