My name is Elliot Roosevelt, the third born son of Anna Eleanor Roosevelt and I’d like to thank everyone for coming today to show their respect for my mother. Today, November 7th, 1962 we are here to bid farewell to a strong, kindhearted, compassionate woman, wife, and mother. She has passed away from bone marrow cancer but that never stopped her heart from touching so many lives.

Her constant work to improve their lives has made her one of the most loved, and one of the most revered women of her generation.

The effects of Rosaleen, the Black Mary, and The Boatwright Sisters assisted Lily in achieving what she thought she could never accomplish. Even with the loss of her mother at a young age, she still was able to live a wonderful life.

Mama finally stands up to Dee and realizes the beauty in Maggie. Mama is a simple woman. She has worked hard her entire life and has done the best to support her family.
