I cherish the memories of us catching night crawlers Friday night so we could use them at opossum lake the next morning.
Your awesome sence of humor, your
beautiful smile, always kind words and
hugs and kisses. I never saw you in a
bad mood, you never spoke negatively about anyone. You were the perfect roll model for our family.
Im sad you're gone, but Pepa has been waiting on you in heaven. So I know you're in a good place now.
I love and miss you

Rose was one of the sweetest ladies I ever met! I am happy that I got to know her for a short time.

We send our sincere condolence on the passing of your Mother to all the family, but especially to Jim since he was such a good friend to our son Randy. She was a very special lady. Sorry we are not able to attend the services today.
