In 1983 when Rosetta was 74, she was the passenger in a car that was hit broadside in the passenger's door. She wound up in the hospital with gashes, bruises and a broken arm. Despite it all, there was a smile on her face. She pointed to the deep gash held together with stitches that had miraculously missed her eye. "See, honey, the guy upstairs was watching out for me. Otherwise I might have had to wear a patch and then I'd look like a pirate."
Later, after she had been released from the hospital a few days later, her daughter suggested that it would be better for Rosetta to come to her house to convalesce. Well, Morgan lived about 30 miles from Rosetta's apartment which would take her away from her friends and beloved sisters Edna and Jean. "Thanks, honey, but I'll be fine here."
Rosetta held up the arm enclosed in a big white plaster cast. "Look, if you're worried about anyone breaking in, I've got the best weapon possible. I'll just hit them over the head with this cast. It's really heavy, you know."
