Rest in Peace, Aunt Rose.

Rose, may you rest in peace with Mary Nan, Buddy and Sonny. It makes me sad to lose you and both of your brothers within a two-month period. I will always remember the love and support you shared with my mother and me when my dad (your Uncle Emmett Meadows) was in the hospital in Nederland in 1976. My sympathy, thoughts, and prayers are with your grandchildren and Mildred.
