Don, Sherry, Lori, Ann, Donna,
We were so sorry to hear the news that RoseLee had passed. We were planning to pay a visit on Sunday. Take comfort in knowing that Aunt Til, Uncle Hank welcomed her with open arms. God works in mysterious ways….our loss is Heaven’s gain! Find comfort in knowing that those who love will reunite in eternity. Love follows, no matter how far!
We will see you very soon. Prayers and Hugs, Jean and Arnie
