I am sorry to hear about the loss of your dearest Rosemary. My family and I wanted to send our deepest sympathy to your family. I wanted to share a comforting thought found in God's Word at Isiah 25:8. I hope your family finds this text comforting as it did me and my family.
— Matthew Murray
I would like to express my deepest sympathies to the family. I know what it is like to lose a loved one in death and very little can ease the pain. My family and I however, have found comfort in understanding the truth about death and the prospect of seeing our dead loved ones again. In the bible, Jehovah God promises to resurrect those who have died, to live again on earth. Yes, according to Isaiah 26:19, "your dead ones will live again. They will awake and cry out joyfully." Additionally, at Psalm 37:10,11 & 29 it states that the righteous ones will live on earth forever in peace, after God has removed all wickedness. Finally, there will NEVER be anymore pain or death. (Revelation 21:4) What a joy it will be to reunite with our dead loved ones with no worries of ever losing them again. I hope this prospect comforts your hearts in this sad time.

My prayers are truly with you and I hope these beautiful scriptures are able to bring some warmth to your hearts as they have been able to bring to mine.

Most sincerely,
— Carmen
I am sorry for your loss our thoughts and prayers are with each and everyone of you,

I remember Rosie as a very young gal. We made our First Communion together at what is now Holy Family church. Iremember allour clases and the studying we had to do. I have found memories of your Grama Rose and aunt Mary. They lived at the rector for a while and cared for the needs of the priest.

Tod Bless all of you. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
