I met Rosa while she resided in San Antonio, TX. where we were members of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church. We became friends. Rosa had a giving spirit, loved to make you laugh and a strong relationship with God. She supported our homeless ministry regularly and other ministries on condition was that it was unanimous. Meeting others needs was important for her.
Rosa always spoke her mind and had no problem defending herself if it became necessary. She was a giant in a small frame.
She had many artistic talents also. I was blessed to have a quilt she made from scrapes.
Her daughters were her proud and joy. She cherished her family and friends. My condolences to her daughters and her cousin Daisy Kelly.

To say that Rosa was a friend is an understatement. Our friendship goes all the way back to the days of Mellon Bank in 1975 in Pittsburgh, PA. I Loved her immediately and she took me under her wings and from that moment forward, "Reverend" which she affectionately named me, I was pulled in.

She taught me so many things and trying to list them all would be an impossibility but I will say that my life has been so enriched by simply knowing her. She was feisty, courageous, honest, gutbucket, very spiritual and one of the greatest Cooks on the planet. She will be missed greatly by many and was loved by the same. May God forever keep her family in his arms as they deal with the day today of such a horrendous loss.

She was my big sister and I miss her dearly. I miss hearing her refer to our Mother as "Crip." She was more like a Mother to me than a Sister. She gave me a lot of structure in my life that I will forever hold onto. She is the reason I turned out to be the man that I am. I want to thank her for helping us with the kids and how to raise the kids. She always gave great advice. She didn't pull no punches. We miss her dearly!!!! I miss you Sweetie Wallace!!!

I'm going to miss my beautiful cousin. She always sent me a birthday card, call or text. I will never forget when she named my Demita...she put that Jo in there and it sounded so pretty. Never will I forget the day she told cousin Fred I don't need to be going to no softball game with him but he insisted. He took me to the game then took me back to her, just as he said he would when they lived on Davis street. I loved those two so very much. When mommy died, my cousin was right there with me even from afar. I will never forget that day when Carm let me talk to her through the video chat. She had me bursting with laughter, when she said Rene look at my mouth...I didn't wanna laugh but she said you know you want to so go head and laugh...and I mean that's what we did! Awww those days when she would say something that would just have my sides hurting; I miss you so very much and I love you. My Sweetie knows she was a gorgeously beautiful woman, I will see you again cousin 😥💔❤️😍
