Dear Dave, Sandra & Family,

Rosemarie...the perfect name for a beautiful woman! We smile every time we think of Rose. Always spirited, always direct and always kind and caring. Our fondest memory was at Dick and Rose's 50th Anniversary. Adoring family members and friends filled the room and Rose ruled them all! She couldn't get us to really eat enough to satisfy her desire that everyone have a wonderful time, but we had a fabulous time! So much laughter because Rose was the life of the party! We're so blessed to have spent time with her and Dick, the love of her life. Such an amazing woman!

Always in our hearts,
Todd and Diane Kidder

I met Dick and Rose after I joined the Mall Walker program at Arden Mall.
They were such a beautiful couple. It always made me smile when their walking was done for the day and they walked away holding hands. The love they shared was obvious to anyone who had the privilege to be around them. A true love story that will continue in heaven. I am honored to have met the Browns. My condolences to the family.
