    Our sympathy for the family of Romell. I have many wonderful memories of Romell since I was very small. She loved to show me her sheep and gave advice when Ron and I were raising orphaned lambs. I loved working with her in the Russellville grocery, as she helped us learn how to be owner/managers. She loved her family and she will be missed!!
