Rosa Lea and I worked together in the telephone office. This was my 1st state job. Rosa Lea took me under her wing since I was the youngest in the office at that time. Although she was quite a bit older, I loved working with her and hearing her stories about her kids and the funny things they did, like throwing a shoe out of the car window. I have often wondered how she was doing, but I had no idea how to get in touch with her. I'm sorry I won't be able to make the service. It is today and i'm just now reading about it in the Advocate.

We we would take her grandson, Taylor Gautreaux to visit , she was so kind and made us feel so welcome. She was a friendly sweet Grandmother. She will be missed by many.
