RECHT, Neta Dial 70, of Richmond, Texas, went to be with her Lord and Savior on May 23, 2015. She was born on January 3, 1945 in Texarkana, Arkansas to her parents, Mamie Walker Dial and Robert Joel Dial. She grew up in Wake Village, Texas and graduated from Texas Senior High School in Texarkana, Texas in 1963. She attended North Texas State University and received Bachelor of Science and Master's degrees in education in 1967 and 1975, respectively. Neta taught school and was a counselor in the Irving Independent School District until she married her beloved husband, Dwight Recht in 1989, who, in her words "made everything that she enjoyed in life possible." Neta loved her home, her flower gardens and her dogs, Misty and Chipper. She had a talent for interior decorating and made her house a home. Neta earned the certification of Texas Master Gardener and was an exceptional landscape gardener. She was active in the Fort Bend Republican Women's Club and was named "2003 Woman of the Year." She was an avid reader and bridge player and enjoyed traveling, especially to Hawaii and Las Vegas where she and Dwight frequently visited. Neta was a very vivacious and outgoing person who enjoyed the company of her many friends and neighbors. She will always be remembered for her positive outlook on life, keen sense of humor, and wonderful compassion and kindness toward others. Neta was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Joel Wayne Dial and her beloved pet, a Miniature Schnauzer named Schatzie. She is survived by her loving husband of 26 years, Dwight, her step-son David Recht and his wife, Jessica, and their children Jonathan and Catherine. She also leaves behind her cousins, Jeanie Cox and Virgie Peek, her nephew, Stephen Dial, her niece, Melanie Dial Scroggins and her two beloved Miniature Schnauzers, Misty and Chipper. She will be forever missed by her immediate and extended family and her longtime friends and neighbors. Neta is profoundly grateful to the family of Angel Benavides for the beautiful lungs she received in August 2008 which enabled her to have a wonderful quality of life for the next seven years. Without their generous gift of life, her life would not have been as enjoyable and certainly much shorter. To honor Neta there will be a Celebration of Life on May 29, 2015 at 1:30 PM in the Sanctuary of Sugar Land First United Methodist Church, 431 Eldridge Road, Sugar Land, Texas 77478, telephone (281) 491-6041. For those so desiring, memorials in Neta's name can be made to The Alzheimer's Association ( www.alz.org ) or to the Alpha-1 Foundation ( www.alpha1.org ).

ROSE, Peter Franklin February 9, 1956 May 15, 2015 Peter passed away on Friday, May 15, amongst family, friends and his wonderful caregivers. He was born in Boston, Mass. and moved to Dallas at the age of four. He is preceded in death by his father, Dr. Patrick F. Rose of Dallas, and his mother, Lee N. Tichnor of East Sandwich, Mass. Peter is survived by his wonderful children son Luke Rose, 22, and daughter Marina Rose, 12, both of Dallas. Luke and Marina were adopted from Russia in 2004 by Peter and their mother Deanne. Peter is also survived by brothers Bradley Rose, John Rose, and Thomas Rose and wife Karen; and sister Anne Thurman and husband Randy. Peter was greatly loved by nine nieces and nephews as well as several godsons and goddaughters. Peter, also known as "Roser", graduated in 1974 from Cistercian Preparatory School where he developed the best and dearest lifelong friends a man could have. Academics were rigorous at CPS but Peter enjoyed many hours playing football and soccer for the Hawks. The faculty invested greatly in the young men and Father Denis had a strong and dear impact on Peter's life. His college career spanned from Rollins to the University of Texas to SMU where he graduated from with a degree in business. Peter lived a life full of adventure. He spent time after college in Micronesia and then Florida and had a variety of careers from computers to selling yachts to teaching in the DISD. He was a man of many talents. He loved sailing and felt a fullness of life and peace while on the water with a mast and jib. He enjoyed cycling, traveling, and cars especially convertibles where he was always sporting his classic Ray-Bans. He was known to bring on an amazing dance on many occasions. His one-of-a-kind charm brightened so many people's lives over the past 59 years. Peter had a tender heart and magnetic personality that drew people to him. His lifelong friends have been a testament to what true friendship is. Together they have known how to have a lot of fun and share the deepest joys and sorrows. The members of this "band of brothers" have made each other's lives rich and full of meaning. The way they have stood by each other through the years speaks volumes. A tribute to the amazing people that cared for Peter in his battle with cancer these past two years. Thank you is not enough to express the family's gratitude in the way they loved and cared for Peter. Shelly, Sandy, Richard, Sophia, Pat and Helen each went the extra mile in their love and attentiveness to him. They have also made the lives of Peter's family and friends richer. A rosary will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, May 29, at Sparkman Hillcrest. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at Cistercian Preparatory School at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 30th. In lieu of flowers, a contribution may be made to Cistercian Preparatory School, 3660 Cistercian Rd, Irving, Texas 75039.
