We are so sorry for your loss of Aunt Rose. She was very special to our family. Well miss her immensely. Especially, our discussions of family, religion, history etc. Her mind was sharp and heart was loving. She was usually the first one to call with her Happy Birthday bear wishes! Always, remembering everyones birthday or anniversary, having calendars filled with everyones special dates, then extending those well wishes, so you knew you were remembered. We will miss her phone calls, funny stories and laughter. We will miss and love her always. God Bless!
