Dear Rose Family,

We are so sorry to learn of Mary Ellen's passing. I'm sure there is a great reunion in heaven of Don & Mary Ragsdale and Steve & Mary Ellen.
You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Susan, Alan, and Craig, I was so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I clearly remember when I first met Mary Ellen at a Chi Omega mother-daughter tea quite some time ago. Her sparkling personality was shining through then, and continued whenever I saw her after that occasion. Please accept my condolences. I'm sure she will be missed by the whole family including the in-laws and grandchildren.
