TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Giffords will be attending the dedication ceremony of the Federal Courthouse in Yuma this afternoon.  Judge Roll had been attending her Congress on the Corner event Jan. 8, 2011 when he was hit by a bullet and killed. 

She will be speaking about Roll, and the work they did together. 

"When I think about what I want the rest of my life to be, I think about Judge Roll," said Giffords in an op-ed piece she wrote for the Arizona Republic. "A man of family, faith and foundational love for our country, he spent his life in the service of others. And then he died as a hero."

Former Congresswoman Giffords worked with Judge Roll when she was a representative of the 8th Congressional District.  The two worked to gain funding for a new courthouse in Yuma, the same one which will be dedicated today in Judge Roll's honor.
