Dear ones, I am thinking of you today and wishing I could be with you. Aunt Rosie was a big part of my life. I fondly remember my summer stays, always during VBS, and our lazy days of summer together. She was an amazing cook, and I loved playing with my older cousins! Through Facebook, I see the family news, but that does not replace being together. Hugs and love to all as you celebrate Aunt Rosie's life today and lay her to rest.

I was saddened to learn of Rose Mary's passing. I don't know if her family will remember me or even know who I am, except perhaps Lana Jo.. Rosemary's late husband, bob and I are second cousins. his mother Blanche Leitch Barnett and my mother Della Behler Callahan being first cousins. I'm thinking of all of you and know you have many memories to comfort you. She was a lovely woman.
