    Rosa was a fine Christian lady with a beautiful smile and a warm heart for everyone she came in contact with. She will be missed by many people

    Heaven is a better place because of accepting Rosa through the gates. Rosa was like my second Mother when I was growing up and since I left Kenbridge always enjoyed our phone calls and visits. I couldn't have made it without the help of Rosa and Jerrie helping Mom so much before she came to Richmond. I always looked forward to their visits to see Mom. Always happy times!! All the family is feeling a sorrow in our hearts but also a blessed feeling for having Rosa in our lives!!! Carl, Yvonne and Robbie will have you in my prayers and thoughts. You were so lucky to have Rosa for your mother.

    Our sympathy to the family in the loss of sweet, sweet Rosa. I have such fond memories of my daddy taking Hilda and me to Elliott's store as children. We loved getting the "penny" candy and Wilson or Rosa putting it in the tiny little brown bags. What a treat! May you find comfort in knowing that Rosa is now with our Heavenly Father and as promised by His word at Peace. Keeping you in our prayers. God Bless.

    Dearest grandma Rosa, I never got to meet you but your granddaughter Crystal told me lots of story of you and Boo. You loved hard and were loved by so many. You will be greatly missed. RIP in Heaven and enjoy reuniting with Boo and your loved ones. 🙏🏼

    We are very sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a very caring person. May God give you strength during this time and wonderful memories to carry in your heart.

    It's been a few days, yet I find myself talking to you often. I'm praying you are happily with all your heavenly family. To say I'm going to miss you barely touches on the loss I feel. But I know you were ready to be with Jesus and to behold all that awaits in Heaven with God. Yvonne says you promised to wait by the gates for a hundred years until we all arrived. I'll see you there. Give my Dad a big hug and let everyone know they are thought of often, and always missed. Love you always Aunt Rosa, Jennifer

She never met a stranger and was loved by everyone she met. Those who were fortunate to know her will best remember her kindness, warmth and humor. Each day will always be a memory; there will be many tears of sadness and some of joy. Even though her life here on earth has ended, we will continue to keep her in our hearts forever.
