LaTona I know how you felt about your grandmother. So sorry for your family loss. You will always had her memories, legacy and more in your heart. It´s rough but she will want you to honor her by doing what she instilled in you for your babies. Her life was awesome and she was truly loved. Heaven gained an angel and you of another in heaven also to watch over you. Praying for your strength during this sorrowful time.

When I first met Mrs. Rorex when I was a child, she greeted me with a big bright warm smile and kind words, all through the years when I encountered Mrs. Rorex, she greeted me with that same beautiful smile and warm pleasant personality. I had the pleasure of running into Mrs. Rorex dining at a restaurant with her daughters and after many years of not seeing her, she greeted me with that same bright smile and warmth that she was so well known for. I will miss Mrs. Rorex, her beautiful smile and warm gentle spirit. May God our Father grant her eternal peace and continue to bless her loving family.
