    In our world today, moving into a new home doesn’t usually mean getting a new friend for a neighbor. For me it was exactly that! Rozalia will always be one of the favorite people God brought into my life, and I will find joy in all the moments we shared for the rest of my life. Thank you Rozalinda and Rosemary for generously sharing your Mama with us. Always keeping you on my heart and in my prayers ♥️

    We were RVing friends in New Mexico in the 1980s/1990s with Steve and Rose. Lovely people and lots of fun and friendship with them.
