  1. Please accept our condolences on the loss of dear Rose. We were both very fond of her and looked forward to seeing her at the family reunion each year. Rose was a very warm and loving person and so much fun. She was a wonderful musician and I liked joining in the sing-alongs with her. We are really going to miss cousin Rose.

  2. Dear Stan, Guy, Brenda, and Ken,
    My sympathies and for each of you and your families, at this time. It was good to talk with Brenda, and knowing how hard cancer is to deal with, its hard to see the suffering they go through. Rose was such a ‘do all I can’ person that I still remember her at the family reunions at Charlie and Daisy’s place, when you were all teenagers. Her good dinners when Hank and I visited, and her musical talent blessed many of us. She always held a special place in my heart. Sorry i could not be with you today, but you are in my prayers.
    Auntie Joyce
