Rosa Lee was the best neighbor at Twin Harbor anyone could have asked for, but I was the lucky one
who she visited with on my weekends down there. She was sweet, kind and always making sure things
were looked after when we couldn't make it. She will always be loved and missed.

What wonderful pictures posted here, especially the family portrait with Rosalee, John, and their sons. I have many good memories of Rosalee and the family, spent a lot of time at their home and was treated like family. A wonderful family, always something going on and a lot of happiness. Rosalee led a full, rich life, may she rest in peace.
