Rosalie helped me tremendously when I ran for County Commissioner back in 2010. She walked every house in her precinct to help me get elected. She was the one person who is responsible for the words "IN GOD WE TRUST" that now adorn our county courtroom along with other surrounding counties. I'll miss her dearly but she's with Jesus walking the streets of gold.

Thank you Rosie for your service to this country. It was such a pleasure serving with you on the flag lines with the Patriot Guard Riders. Your dedication and loyalty in serving others was a true testament to who you were. You kept us well cared for as we stood the flag lines honoring our Veterans in good and bad weather. Now your serving our Father God in Heaven. You will be so greatly missed but "Never Forgotten".
