Carla and Family, I had a wonderful experience getting to know your mother, she was a wonderful woman that I was so proud to be around. I enjoyed talking and laughing with her on a daily basis. I also enjoyed the way she could get feisty over how the food was cooked for her. But the most important thing that will always stay with me is her friendship for us. I miss her everyday while I'm there. But now she is free from every pain that held her back, and now she can be the Lord cook. Sadly missing her. Donna Deaton

Harold and I were so sorry to hear of Aunt Rosemary's passing. She was a fine lady. I have fond memories of her and Uncle Mark. As I would walk to Tipton Street School, I passed by their house and saw them many times. My sister and I would stop to talk and sometimes Aunt Rosemary would offer us some refreshment. It is always difficult to lose a parent no matter what age they are. Rest in peace Aunt Rosemary and God bless you and yours. Sandy (Thorn) Finton

I spent many evenings just sitting and talking with Rosemary after My best friend Carla left to go to school. I too was all alone. She gave me encouragement and support! She was a very lovable person, even included me in the family dinners! She will be missed.

Steve, Sharon and Carla,
We are so sorry you have lost a mother. Perhaps sadness dwells now but your memories of her will soon overtake them.
We would have liked to visit you tomorrow but I am watching a store while the owner goes to another funeral.
God sure has his gates open this week.

Thinking of you, Paul and Judy Oden Lewis

Steve,Carla, and families:

Rose Mary was a great lady. I enjoyed the times I spent at your house when we were neighbors. I know that she will be greatly missed. I will be out of state this weekend and will be unable to be at the visitation. Prayers continue.

Carla and family,
I am so sorry to learn that your mom (grandma, mother-in-law) passed away. I know it is hard to see a family member go downhill and be in pain. She is no longer in pain and in a much better place. My thoughts and prayers are with you Carla, Greg, Nicole and Laura. Diana Kimmel
