Becky, Norman and families,
We are so sorry to hear of Aunt Rosies passing. She was a lovely lady who always had a twinkle in her eye. Loved visiting with her on the few occasions that the entire family was together.
Unfortunately we will not be able to attend the services, but want you to know that you are in our thoughts.
