To the Rolen family, My thoughts and prayers are with each of you. I took piano lessons from your mom and she was such a positive force in letting me know that my playing did not have to be perfect but enjoyable. I will never forget those special times. Your faith will see you through this time. Again my thoughts and prayers along with my family are with you all!

My late husband, Earl, and I shared so many memories with the Rolen family during the years they served in the Music Ministry at Oak Grove Baptist Church. We both had sons named Richard. We all sang in the choir together. Somehow we lost touch when our family moved to NC, but we never forgot the Rolens. To all the boys I send my love and will be praying for you as you go through this time of not having your Mother around to love on when you need that comfort. Kristina and Paulette send their love. I would love to hear from you.
