What an amazing tribute was given today to what could only have been the most amazing of women. The family and legacy created would not exist if they hadn’t had the most perfect mother and grandmother to model themselves after. Sharon and family take solace in knowing you were blessed to have Rose in your lives for so long and were able to have her there with you in your home daily experiencing the family she created. Our prayers and live are with you today and always.
Love Jill Tupa and family

I love you Mom and I will and already do miss you terribly.
Our home is so empty without you and your loud TV, it is so silent in here.
I pray you are with all your Brothers and Sisters and Daddy.
You will forever be in my thoughts.
