My deepest sympathy to you. I missed seeing your Mother doing odd jobs outside after she moved from Main St. If I was walking, we would spend a few minutes talking. Memories are precious.

I loved Aunt Rosie and Uncle Wayne. When they were first married, my brother and I spent many hours at their apartment. We always felt welcome and special to them. In later years when I visited, Aunt Rosie beamed as she shared about her beloved children and grandchildren. I’m so grateful I got to see her after she moved to Otterbein and that she still remembered me. I’m grateful she didn’t linger long as this disease robbed her of her memories. I hope her passing was a peaceful one. These two will always hold a special place in my heart and I envision them together again and held in Divine Love. My sympathy to her children and grandchildren for this great loss.
