Dear McDonald Family:

We want to express our sincere condolences. May the angels in heaven send comfort in the days of storm. May the prayers of those you love be with you to give you strength to face your loss.

Although CFYAHS have lost someone very special to us, you have lost someone more precious. She taught us so much about loving one another. How to share, how to bring sunshine into others lives. She taught us how to make crafts from what others thought to be just trash, but she saw beauty in them. She taught us to be as busy as the bee as we worked to bring a little bit of sunshine and happiness into someone's life everyday. Rosemary, we love you and will miss your beautiful face and voice.

Our love and prayers to the McDonald Family. May God Bless each of you

I enjoyed getting to know you Sis McDonald. You and Bro. Mac were a blessing to the church here in Orlando, and played a huge role in keeping the doors open throughout the years. May God bless you, in heaven, for your great contributions in prayer and time. You were excellent role models to follow, lived good Holy lives, and are now enjoying your reward. We miss you, and can not wait till we meet again, in heaven. I enjoyed sharing memories, and singing. I cant wait to sing with you, up there, some glad day!

My Mother to me Mommy ❤️ She was my support always there for me sweet but stern. She raised 11 children 9 boys & 2 girls. There were tough times but she put all her faith in God and always seemed to have the strength to pull through. She had the most amazing singing voice I've ever heard and will forever be in my memories. She was my rock and the two things she always told me was you are stronger than you know and you can do anything as long as you put your mind to it. You know I think she was right but I always knew I had her strength behind me. Now I'll just have to look to heaven for my guiding angel I know she will be forever and always there for me. You will forever & always be in my heart Mommy! I love you so very much! It's not good bye it's til we meet again!' My angel I love you !! ❤️❤️

You and Bro. McDonald allowed me to go to Pennslyvania with you when I was only about 13 to a campmeeting. I learned so much that summer and I owe it to you for knowing about Jesus and wanting to use my voice for His glory....I will always remember you...I will see you when He calls me home...until you!
