It is going to look like this is from my mom ( Jacqueline), but it isn't. I didn't get to see my Grandmother very much, But when I did see her, it was a gift. The last time I saw her alive was Valentines Day 2020. We facetimed frequently, but you always only saw her forehead. She was kind, sweet, loving, everything you could ever dream of. Long story short, we miss her so much, and will never forget the memories.

My beautiful cousin Rosemary was one of the most generous, loving, caring and upfront person in this world. Her strength, wisdom, and courage was amazing even thru her own journey of life she was always there for everyone. I remember when my mother Lucille and father Happy passed away she was the first one who called me and my sister Christine and said she loves us and what can she do for us. She was extremely devoted to her daughters Jacqueline and Melinda and love them so much and was so in love with her 3 beautiful grandchildren. My dear Cousin Rosie may you rest in peace and may god unite you with all those whom have passed along the way. My heart is broken that you have left us you will be truly missed. Love you always Rosie Teri John and Johnny and Angel.
