Offer Condolence for the family of Roslyn Omega PinkneyPrint This Obituary & Condolences
My condolence to you and your family. I pray the lord give you all peace and understanding in this difficult time in you all life.
This is a woman I always only knew by “grandma”, who helped make me feel at home and with family whenever I was around. Everyone I know from this family has a certain kindness in their heart that I know she helped make. This is a family that helped raise me for multiple formative years of my life, for no reason than I just happened to spend a lot of my time with them. I’m sad I won’t be able to see her again, or talk to her as the older, wiser person I am now. But I know she still lives on in so many people who I love and care about. I am thankful for her and for the beautiful family she brought to life, and offer my deepest love and condolences to those who are feeling her absence the most.
Christina and Elvin Brathwaite
We would like to send our deepest condolences to the family and send our love and prayers for strength to you all.
