Rosedale and Cleveland have lost a fine lady. Natalie I am praying for your family. She was the sweetest person. The last time I saw her was in j c penneys in Greenville about a year or so ago. We talked for about 30 or 40 minutes about rosedale and all the people we knew and who had moved where and who had passed away, etc. I had a ball talking about the old days in rosedale
