I wrote in Rose's guest book before - I referred to our visits at the lake. But I can't find it! So I'll say again what a fun lady I thought she was and how much I enjoyed our get-togethers each summer on Megunticook. I'm so glad I knew her and I'll miss her. Love, Anna Maria Parker

To Cyncee, Johnny, Ginger, and Chris, I have thought about you and your Mom many times and will never forget the time I spent at your home. Both during high school, and a few years ago when we visited Houston. Mrs. Webre was a very special lady and will always be in my heart. Sorry for your loss, she was a wonderful lady and always made me feel at home.
Lots of love,

Laura Hill

I have long been in awe of the kind and fiercely independent and determined character of Mrs. Webre. When Cyncee told me that her mother was taking a golf lesson AT AGE 90 it was clear to me that nothing, NOTHING got in the way of her enthusiastic embracing of life. What a wonderful woman.

To the Webre Family-

Mom and I were very saddened to hear about the passing of your mother. She was an amazing lady and, as my father said, an amazing teacher. She will be sorely missed.

Love, Karen & Joan Foxwell

To Johnny, Ginger, Cyncee and my “little” Chris. I was so very sorry and sadden to hear about the death of Mrs. Webre. While working for Mrs. Webre many long years ago; she was not only a very sweet and fair employer, but became my good friend as well. I never forgot how Chris would call me “his Jean”. I am also thankful I had a chance to visit Mrs. Webre last year, we had a nice time and she filled me in on how all of you were doing. We did not talk often, but when we did, we were glad to hear from one another. God has blessed Mrs. Webre with a good long life, but He needed another beautiful “Rose” for His Heavenly garden and He picked her. May God's love and goodness sustain you, in your lost. Love,Jean Deason, Houston.
