Words escape me at this time. A piece of my heart broke off and went to heaven with Auntie Rose. She was always there watching our for all of us. She looked after us when we were little and she looked out for us when we grew up. There was no better friends to our Mom and Dad than Auntie Rose and Uncle Donald. As the years wore on my Mom and Auntie Rose looked out for each other. We were neighbors that were family. Thank you Auntie Rose! Our family was better with you in it! We will miss and love you forever.
