I am Rozella's friend down the hall in the D-wing at Crestwood. We had so many good visits and discussions, and there was one particular event that had us laughing together time and again. I will only say that it involved the words, "Well, hello there!" The rest will be between Rozella and me!!! I will miss her gentle and dignified ways of being, and consider her one of my role models.

Sincerely,

-- Kari

As a friend to the family, I will miss the chance to visit with Mrs. Walker on my trips to Indianapolis. She was one of the few seniors who gave you the opportunity to express your thoughts. I wish the best for the many family members she left behind. Thanks for the great conversations she and I had.
