Sharon and family, I am so sorry to hear of Roscoe's passing. He was a very sweet and kind man. He could always put a smile on everyone's face at church. I will miss him not coming in the door on Sunday's and not shaking my hand as he always did. Sharon, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May God comfort and strengthen you all.

My uncle Roscoe was one of a kind. He was so funny at times and I loved his stories about his cars and family and any other subject you happen to be talking about at the time. He wasn't afraid of nothing. He had such a wonderful spirit that you just couldn't help love being around him. He loved people and many loved him too. He wasn't ashamed to be a witness for the Lord and let people know he was saved. I'm so glad that I was blessed to have such a great uncle and I will miss him terribly. But I know he's in heaven and I will see him one day. All my Love and prayers go out to his wife Sharon and family. I love you all !!! Connie
