    ROSEMARY, we can’t believe you’re gone! You were such a wonderful person, God fearing and down to earth. My family were blessed to know you over the past 20 years. We love you but God loves you most. We hope in His Resurrection, that one day we shall see you and sing “Hallelujah” with the Angels. May the Angels welcome you Home. We pray for your relatives and and all love ones that, they will be comforted and have consolation in the Lord.
    ROSEMARY, God saw that you were getting tired and He whispered to you; ‘come, my daughter and have some rest!’
    You will be greatly missed! We know,
    and believe that you’re now resting in the Lord. Rosemary, Rest in peace but not in pieces!

    My son told me they were cleaning out Rosemary’s house, I didn’t know she passed away, haven’t been out much since Covid! I used to see her when I’d walk around the neighborhood, my (our) condolences to her family
