Brenda and Janice. Jim and I were so saddened to hear that Rosemary had passed. As I told you on the phone our plans for this summer were to visit the falls and stop and spend some time with your mom. Life is so short and I guess we should plan to visit more often. We were great friends and did so much together in North Carolina. She baby sat my kids and I baby sat Brenda. Those will be the days that I will remember the most as I think of her. She was a wonderful woman and Jim and I loved her so very much. We will be unable to attend Saturday but you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Grandma,
Thank you for being such a positive influence and big part of my life. You were like a second mother to me always taking the time to listen whether about something important like college or just the gossip of the day from school. I am glad you were able to see me graduate from high school because i know how much it meant to you. Thank you for supporting me in cheerleading and dance both emotionally and physically at my games and competitions. I will miss you more than you know (although you probably do know) especially just being able to talk. I know i can still talk to you every night because your listening from heaven and i will i promise. Rest in peace grandma rosie, I love you.

Love your” sweet girl” and “princess”
