I am so sorry to hear about Rosella's death. I want to extend my heartfelt sympathies to her family. I will always remember the wonderful, loving care she provided for my children many years ago. Dee Ann and Arlen were teens then, and they would sometimes lend a hand and help entertain our little boys. Rosella has been a friend and personal inspiration to me for a long time. She was an amazing woman and I'm so fortunate to have known her. I'm sorry that I didn't learn of her death in time to attend her funeral.
Sincerely,
Jane Melton

I just saw this sad news about the passing of Rosella Salley. I got to meet Rosella several years ago after her daughter contacted me to share the story about Rosella and her family's connection to my father, Dr. Alvin B. Hayles. We had a lovely time together when I visited her home one morning, and we talked about the challenges she and her family had faced and how my father had helped them. It was an honor to meet her. I know my father especially would want me to extend my condolences to her children and extended family at their loss.
Sincerely,
Marsha Hayles

Over the years I have delivered Meals on Wheels to Rosella as a substitute for Family Service. It was always special to do the route she was on, as she was always cheerful and had something interesting to share!
