I met Rose when she was an AWANA leader at church, teaching 3 and 4 year-olds to love Jesus like she did. She always remembered and asked about my son even decades after he was in her class. She is a dear lady who will be missed, along with Connie, but it is still a joy to know they are with our Lord now, and reunited with Ray and Ray, Jr. as well. It was a privilege to know them all. Prayers and blessings to their families.

I live not far from Connie and Marie. He was the President of our Neighborhood Association. He served for many, many years. This is a selfless and volunteer calling and he did such a good job for so long. Always friendly and helpful, we will miss him.
