James and Julia Rolle - 09/16/2013

To Kevin,Jimmy, Jeannie, Paul,Ricky and family: My wife and I would like to extend our deepest sympathies. I feel fortunate to have spent a day with him last year, when we saw Grandma Rolle for the last time together. He was a man I respected by the way he lived his life and all the people he affected with his effervescent personality. Your Mom and He had something special that as we age we appreciate more and more. He told me they were suppose to meet on the back side of the moon, well, I believe they are together, very happy once again. My last memory is my Uncle Rick and me giving a last hug, pats on the back and an exchange of "I love you" and we'll see each other soon. It's a memory I will cherish forever. Be strong like he would want you to and God bless you all as He's blessed you with such extraordinary parents.
