I can always remember that most beautiful smile and her laugh that would light up the whole house. The Christmas's that we would spend and summers are my fondest memorys with so much family packed into grandma and grandpa's house you couldn't move,but so many stories and memorys that no family like ours have ever experienced. However, I have to hand it to my mom, Aunt Polly, and Aunt Rozetta, they always had their seat at the kitchen table playing scrabble lol best of times. Thankyou Aunt Rozetta for always being there for the whole family each and everyone of us. Much love and respect. Till we meet again. What a glorious day that will be. Suellen

Thank you so much for everything you ever did for me from the first day after Kevin and I were married, you were like a second mother to me, we always did things together and done things for one another you were the dearest grandmother to our son and I always enjoyed it when we went on road trips together and Branden would get in the back and build a tent in the back, there is so may things I could put in here but most of all you are going to missed I will miss our trips out shopping and seeing you ever other day. I know now that you are in a much better place and no more pain till we meet again I love you.

Too many wonderful memories to share just one. For me...Aunt Rozetta was the epitome of strength,,grace and poise. She taught me so many things,,and the greatest was unconditional love! I will cherish her memory until we meet again.

When I was a kid I couldn’t wait for Aunt Rozetta and uncle Clyde to come visit in the summertime. She always brought so much happiness to my grandma and grandpa’s house. Grandma and I would count down the days til they came. They would laugh and share old memories that I loved listening to. Cook! Oh my word, Rozetta could make any ordinary dish taste like it was prepared by some gourmet chef and I guess in some ways it was lol. It was always a sad time when it was time for them to go back home. Just like it’s a sad time now but she is definitely gone home to be with grandma, grandpa and Jesus and the many other loved ones that have gone home. I’m sure grandma has been counting down the days and oh the memories they have to share now. Thank you for always loving me Aunt Rozetta even when I didn’t deserve it.

Thank you Aunt Rozetta for the light you spread. Thank you for putting up with a towheaded young kid full of mischief and energy and always praying for me, and for your unconditional love for our family. A light has gone out and things are a lot less bright. Till we meet again.
