Andrea & Peter

Dear Andy, Murph, Hannah, Emily and Liz,
Rose was an amazing woman, and all the Butkuses are just so sad we did not get to have her among us longer.
We have such fond memories of our famiy friendships--Abby and Murph, Gwen and Hannah. It was always delightful to hear your mom talk about you girls--she adored you and she and your dad did a wonderful job of creating loving family and beautiful capable women, all of whom have given so much to us who knew her. We wish you much peace...
