I remember Rosie’s beautiful smile and sweet voice and disposition the most. She always had a smile, a laugh, and a kind word for everybody. She was a great friend in college and ROTC. I don’t know a single soul who didn’t absolutely love Rosie - she was just that special of a person.

My sincerest condolences to Candice, Gerald, and all of Rosie’s loved ones. Prayers for peace during this difficult time.

Rosie, Rest In Peace and love, and I will see you in Heaven, my friend!

Candice, you were the light of your Mother's eyes. She and I served on the SAU Foundation together. She was a pleasure to know. When I think of Rosie, I think of her love for others, her love for SAU, and her love for you. Through her, I had the pleasure of getting to know you. She and I laughed over many of your UALR experiences. My prayers and thoughts are with you and the family at this time.

Working with Rosie on the SAU Foundation Board of Governors was a pleasure. She inspired us through her commitment to giving back to others and supporting young people. Rest In Peace, dear friend.

So sorry to hear of Rosie’s passing. She was my classmate and was the sweetest person. I’m lifting the family up in prayer through this difficult time. May The Lord give you peace that surpasses understanding and comfort that only He can give.
