Uncle Bill, Joanna, Connie and Bobby, I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Rosa Lee. She was a wonderful person and I always felt that she cared for us like we were her own. Very patient, understanding and tolerant. She will be missed in our hearts but never forgotten in our memories.

I love that she wanted to greet everyone with a kiss and before she left every one got a kiss. It would take her 30 minutes to leave because she kiss a few and start talking again. Then she forget who she kiss and you might just get another before she got out the door. LOVE YOU AUNT ROSE.

My Grandma Rosa Lee

Beautiful inside and out
Generous, loving, and kind
Giving warm hugs to welcome you
Preparing family feasts made with love
Planting colorful flowers to fill her yard
Gardening with hardworking hands to nourish us all
Wearing purple enjoying her sweet tea

My Grandma Rosa Lee
Love you always
