Our Prayers are with the family during this time. We lived 26 years as neighbors and their family became part of our family. We loved Rosa Lees laughter, smiles and her dedication to her family. Both of our children became to love her as a grandmother. Now.. memories of her will sustain all of us until we join her in heaven. Rest in peace dear friend.
