Dear Cousins Patsy, Casey, Mary & Erin
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families on the loss of your mother, grandmother and our Aunt. I was fortunate to have such a quality Aunt. Needless to say, we are all fortunate to have had such good Aunts & Uncles. As I told Casey, I shall always remeber your father as such a kind gentlman. Likewise, I have so many good memories of your mom that bring smilles and laughter to us. Just to name a few: playing golf with Aunt Roseann, Aunt Mary, Peter Herman and I, playing cards with her especially when she was not getting good cards, and our telephone conversations we would have - especially when I would try and tell her what a good person Tiger Woods Was - boy did that bring an earful. I hope the many fond memories you have of her help ease your loss. May she rest in peace with her Lord everlasting.

Dear Mahon Family, we were shocked to hear the news about RoseAnn, as Bernie had just spoken to her a few weeks prior to her passing. I'm currently visiting Mom in GR and she wanted to post our family condolences to all of you. We have such fond memories of card games, times around the player piano and great conversations with your mom!! Bernie said she was such a "fun character" and never afraid to express her opinion about something! We have had you all in our thoughts and prayers and can just see her shouting "FORE" in heaven! Love from Bernie Rassmussen and family.

A dear friend will be lost.
I'm sure Rose Ann has found a bridge foursome and playing golf again.
