I have so many wonderful memories of Ms. Rosemary. She was a good friend to my grandma (Macel Sparks). I loved listening to the choir at church as she lead them. She was a sweet and loving lady. I always loved that she would have earrings that matched her high heels. :) . You are in my thoughts and prayers.
