I have fond memories of cousin Rosemary from my childhood as a very compassionate person who laughed easily in comedies and would also cry in sad dramatic movies. Her feelings ran deep, and her compassion was very near the surface. Her laughter was contagious, and her love of family was always obvious as she would welcome our family's annual visits to McKinney with gladness and excitement. May her family be comforted by the assurance of Resurrection and Reward for those who have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Redeemer. --Linda (Greek) Fowler
