Rose has always been an inspiration to me on how to live the Christian life! She had a special devotion to Mary and was always filled with joy when sharing her ups and downs. I agree with others in that she rarely complained about her illnesses and was always sharing about how important her family was and how much she loved them and the Lord. She had such a sweet spirit and had such a strong faith! It brings me joy to think of her in her new home with the Lord, and no longer suffering. I'm sure there has been much celebration in heaven! May all the wonderful memories of Rose bring us all comfort as we continue to pray for her and her wonderful family.

Rose was a dear friend whose faith lead her to a personal relationship with Our Lord. She never complained in spite if physical difficulties and offered her suffering up for the intentions of other people. We enjoyed going to confession together, saying the Rosary and sharing prayer requests. She had a beautiful singing voice and her recitation of the Rosary was musical. I will miss our conversations about faith and prayer.

For many years Rose has been a dear friend, we have shared good times together that included attending Holy Mass and growth programs. We also attended luncheons and parties together and had great fun. Along with prayer and study, Rose loved to sing to Jesus and Mother Mary, her voice was soft and gentle. Rose was a special friend to all of our family. Family was important to Rose and she prayed continually for her family and many other families as well. Although Rose suffered from bad health she was not a complainer. During this last episode she told me that her desire and prayer was to be well enough to attend Holy Mass on Easter Sunday. Now we know that on Easter Sunday, Rose was with our Lord. We will miss Rose and we pray, until we meet again.
Love Eternal,
Christine, Kevin and family
