May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Mrs. Rountree, It was my pleasure to work with you during each of your annual antique sales. You always liked the signs that I made for you.

June Bug and siblings--Saddened by the loss of your beloved Mother. She now is with the Lord and your dear Father. It was our pleasure to know your family.

Mrs. Rountree was a delight to know and will be missed most sincerely. My deepest condolences to the family.

I have great memories of Mrs. Roundtree. My father landscaped her home and I went along with him several times, and she was sweet and nice to me, and didn't seem to mind my father brought a child with him to a business meeting. I played dolls while Dad instructed the men, and she brought me cookies. As an adult I remember her as a gracious hostess at cocktail parties, ready with a quick smile and a light in her eyes. It was a pleasure to know her.

I have precious memories of Mrs. Rountree from when I was a boy. She and Mr. Rountree were lovely people. My family and I offer our condolences. She is absent from here now, but she is present with the Lord. God Bless You.

I am so sad to hear about the passing of Mrs. Rountree. Whenever I think of her I remember the wonderful events I attended at her home when I was a Baylor ZTA and all of her efforts with the Antique Show. She was so giving of herself and her time. I know she will be greatly missed by her family and the community of Waco.

Our prayers are with you.

Rountree Family, Your remarkable mom was such a great lady. Generous with her time, talents,and love and her wonderful gift of friendship! James and I are blessed to have known her, to have witnessed she and Mr. R's great devotion to one another,and to have counted her among our lifelong friends. People like her do not grace the earth very often. I know the joy she brought you all will always make you smile!
