  1. Dear Adrian

    I have searched for years for you. I am so sorry that I found you this way. I fondly remember your mom and dad. I am so sorry for your loss. I keep you in my prayers and thoughts. I hope you remember me as it has been more than 50 years since we have seen each other. We went to St. Joe together. Maybe that will spark your memory. I really hope to hear from you when you are able. Rosemary

  2. It was wonderful to visit with Rose so that she could meet Nicolai and visit with Peja. I’m so glad Chris was able to arrange this visit. It was avery special day for all of us. She loved spending time with us and sharing memories. I will always remember her kindness and love. My sympathy, Irene

  3. I will never forget my grandma’s laugh. It was heard frequently and was so full of joy. We will all miss her very much.

  4. Grandma Rose brought such warmth and happiness to the room whenever we visited. It was such a treat to see her smile, and hear her laugh. She was a great conversationalist and was always thoughtful, welcoming and warm-hearted.

    It is hard to say goodbye and we’ll miss her, but her spirit is with us in fond, loving memory.
