The entire Mollett and Meadows family and friends wish to extend a large heartfelt thank you to Sarah Harkins and Markias (Kia) Littlejohn for staying with Rosetta to the very end. For all the love and support that was extended to us above and beyond the work requirement. Your willingness to participate in her life made her family know how much she was loved.
We also wish to extend a large heartfelt thank you to all those who took care of Rosetta past and present during her stay at Echoing Meadows. Her 29 years at Echoing Meadows was not just a residence where she lived, but became a home that she enjoyed. As well as a joyous reunion for her family to retreat to and partake in her daily life.
Rosetta is gone from our view and missed by many, but she will remain in our hearts forever.
