Family mourning loss of woman killed in traffic accident

The daughter of a 55-year-old woman who was struck and killed by a bus on Saturday said she is trying trying her best to “keep it together”.

Lakisia Moss said her mother, Sherry Rolle was a kind woman.

She said her brother, who has been in prison for nearly a decade, is taking the loss particularly hard.

Police said Rolle was knocked down near her home off Hospital Lane by a man driving a Toyota Coaster bus.

“This is a blow for our family, particularly because the other half … is incarcerated, namely my brother,” Moss said.

“He’s serving time for protecting her. You know, he was defending her and protecting her and as a result he found himself incarcerated. And so, the last memory that he has of his mother is him sacrificing his freedom for her because he loved her and he still loves her.”

Moss said that her mother often told friends and family how she wanted to live long enough to throw a party for him when he got out of prison.

While describing her mother’s death as “tragic,” she said, “I lost a loved one. I’m trying to keep it together and she was and will always remain my heart string.”

Moss said the family intends to cremate Rolle and scatter her ashes in the blue hole in Andros.
