Mrs.Huff will always be remembered as a great prayer warrior. She knew how to reach our Heavenly Father and did so many times on our behalf. She prayed for our children even before they were born. She also prayed for both of us. Her faithfulness to God, in service and in prayer, has left all of us something to aspire to. We are praying for the entire family. Please remember how much Mrs. Huff was loved, admired and respected by all who had the pleasure to know her. She will be and has already been missed!I know that she is one happy and rejoicing lady right now! I can just imagine the smile on her face! What a better world this would be if we all prayed and lived like Mrs. Rosalie Huff! May God bless and comfort you all.
Love in Christ,
Charles,Donna,Austin and Savannah Maynor

I am sorry to learn of your Mom’s passing. I have always felt that she was a special lady as to have raised three wondeful sons that I have had the pleasure of working with over the years. The roll model that you have lead over the years is an honor to your Mother and I know she has truly been a blessed lady to have her son’s lead the life they have to show how well they were raised and what having a Christian Mother makes a difference in life. My thoughts and prayers are with all the family at this time.
