Laurel, Orry and Rosemary,
I was saddened to read your mom's obituary this morning. She was the sweetest neighbor we had when I was a little girl. Rosie was always happy and had the cutest laugh. I would run up to her, and she would pick me up and we'd share her gum. It's funny how I remember that little thing. My mom, who is 90, and I were just talking about Rosie and we wanted to visit her this summer when mom was in Minnesota. We had fun growing up next to you, and I want to convey my deepest sympathy to all of you Rosie was a class act. I'm sending sympathies from my mom, too. Bless you, Karen

Dear Laurel, Orrie and Rosemary,

It's with a heavy heart that I write this message. I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. I, like my sister Karen, I have many fond memories of Rosie. I close my eyes and I can hear her voice and laughter. And, like Karen, the passing of gum during kisses was one of the fondest memories of all. Wishing you all peace in your memories of a wonderful woman. Love to you, "KK"

Laurel, I haven't seen you since high school, but remember you fondly and was very sorry to read of your mother's passing. She certainly had a long and full life with a lifetime of good memories and loved ones. Lifting you all up in prayers as she enjoys the promises of God for us and our loved ones. Betty Wilenius

Rosie - I saw the obituary for your Mom and was sad to see it. I have just gone through it with my Mom in February of this year. She was 90 but it still was very hard. You are never ready to say goodbye. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. You know they can't live forever but sometimes you would like them to and you just miss them.

Take care,
