My deepest sympathy and love to the Britz family. Rosa was most certainly an Angel on Earth. Rosa inspired me with her compassion, understanding, unconditional love, her humor, her dedication & support throughout the last couple of years. Rosa, profoundly, touched so many, including me, and she will always be in my heart. She was a beautiful women, inside & out. I will cherish my memories and never forget the wisdom, strength & hope she has shared with me. First time I met her, she gave me a big hug and every time I would see her, a big hug. I am blessed to have known Rosa, she will be deeply missed, but not forgotten. With Sympathy & Love, Barbara L.

My sincere condolences and thoughts go out to Rosa's family and friends. She was such a sweet, gracious lady, quick with her witty sayings, always had a chocolate in her pocket for you and a good hug. She will be missed greatly at our weekly meetings.
As she would always say when she hugged me goodbye after a meeting, "Take Care, All the Best"
Miss you Rosa,
Debbie Campbell

My sincerest sympathy to Peter, Margareta, Erich, Karen, Christine and your families. You had such a wonderful mother. I have fond memories of the summer days we spent picking raspberries at Bakers' farm. Your mom always was so cheerful and made the days go by faster. Those are good memories! I know you will miss her so much.
