Oh the sweet wonderful memories that I have of Rosa...the Christmas cookies that she made every year, her German buttercream birthday cakes, her strawberry New Year's punch, the little crochet crosses and hearts that she put in birthday and Christmas cards...and her laugh...she had the most awesome laugh that could make the whole room smile! When I was younger, she could keep me listening for hours with stories of her childhood. Rosa had a beautiful, pure heart, and was such a sweet and loving friend to our family, especially to my mother. She had a great sense of humor and never had a cruel thing to say about anyone. If this world had more beautiful souls like Rosa's...we will miss her until we meet again. Continuing thoughts and prayers for her family and friends.

Our Mom was the best Mother in the world! If you needed anything all you had to do was ask. When we were young, she would make all our Barbies clothes, for my sister and I she made us doll birthday cakes. They had the full lace icing for the 👗. It was beautiful. Our Brother Ed always kept mom laughing, she had a great laugh. And even though she had a hard life coming up, and illnesses throughout her life, she was so strong, and her laughter and happiness was contagious. Everyone that met my Mom, loved her and she loved them. We are going to miss our Mother more than we can say. But we know she is with God and our Dad, and everyone before her. And she is whole again, no pain anymore. Love you always, and forever in our hearts. ❤️❤️❤️
