  1. Burrell and family: We are so very sorry to hear about Rosa Nell. I have known her and all the family my entire life. Every time I saw her she was always the same person I remember her being when I was a child and she came into my granddaddy’s store, Caddess Grocery. My heart is sad along with you. So many good memories to reflect upon. Fly high Rosa Nell. You will be missed. Love in Christ, Deborah and Dennis


  2. So sorry to hear about Rosa Nell! we grew up up together in Scotland Baptist Church as well as being in the same class in Winona School. I have a lot of fond memories of the sometimes crazy things we did growing up. We reconnected when our children went to Winona Academy. She was a wonderful person!
