  1. Hi everybody, It’s been a long time. Aunt Rose was my favorite aunt, along with uncle Johnny. I remember the cooks outs we had, and getting into trouble running up and down the steps. And of course bingo, my thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. God Bless

  2. I really enjoyed knowing Mrs. Rouscher when I taught at Northeastern and she took care of my empty stomach in the cafeteria. She was a great person who I know loved her family very much. I am so glad I was able to know her. My sympathy and wish for good memories to all .
