Rose was a wonderful friend. I will certainly miss all our talks and her letters. She had a great love for all of her family and was so proud of Abigail. My sympathy to all of the family.

Roselyn was such a positive person and always talked about her daughters and families. I so enjoyed her company when she came into the dental office and will miss her beautiful smile. Jill Johnson (Dental Hygienist)
