    I haven’t seen Rose since I was a little girl but will always remember her sweet spirit. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Please accept my sympathy at the passing of your wife/mother/grandmother, Rose. I remember her from my years working at ISD 877 — such a pleasant woman and always, always smiling! I think she loved being around the school children more than anything! May God be with you all during this sad time and keep you in his care.

    My Aunt Donna and I knew Rose from Fresenius Dialysis. She would be leaving when we came in. It was a shock to hear she passed because she has been looking good. She is free now and safe in the arms of the Lord. Keeping you all in our prayers. Our deepest sympathy to the family.
