Sad to hear of your loss…Was planning to to see her this summer..My prayers to her family
I loved Sister Rollins. I will never forget her sweet smile, gentle ways, and the fun young women’s activities at her home. She lived a wonderful life and is a great example to us all.
Rollins family-I’m sad to hear about the passing of your mother. She was a great lady. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. One encouraging thought you might find comforting is found at John 5:28, 29. “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” God gives us this beautiful hope that he will soon resurrect our dead loved ones and we can see them again on a paradise earth.
Always wanted to be just her after I was in Maine so warm hearted such a beautiful, wonderful mother. I’m sure she working a heavy duty on the other side. Love and miss her.
