God will see you through what life brings you to. You are a strong loving family, hold tight to that, it is very rare these days. I thank you for letting me be a part of that special family. Roscoe and Mary Anne took me into their home as a preteen, they cared for me, taught me and loved me as their own child, blessings in my life I will cherish forever. What a loving heart he spread all around the valley. I, as well as many others have been blessed by knowing Roscoe, may Gods loving arms hold him tight.
I love you all,
