You have my deepest sympathy in the loss of Rosemary. I loved bringing her Communion when she was in Majestic Bluffs. She was so grateful. May God bless you with the strength to deal with the grief.

My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Rosemary please read God's wonderful promise for the loved ones we have lost in death it will give you hope and comfort during this difficult time Acts 24:15; John 5: 28,29; Revelation 21: 1-5.
My prayers are with you all. Rosemary was a wonderful woman and greatly influenced me as a young girl. The way Rosemary and Gene welcomed me with open arms the summer I was in Nebraska was a true gift. She already had a large family and worked harder than most people I knew. I was scared and confused and she and her family made me feel like I had a second family. She will be sorely missed
