    Rosa was like as big sister. She worshipped at Smyrna over “40” years. Coming along with her late Mother-lm law Evangelist Dorothy McKinney, Rosa a accepted the Lord and then drew her late husband Aaron.
    Rosa was a demure/small woman, but when she was getting her praise on, the Lord made her Tall.
    She shall be greatly missed.
