Dear Roger, May God's Spirit be with you to give you peace that passes understanding as you mourn your mother's departure from earth and celebrate her release from pain and entrance into heaven through our Lord Jesus Christ. I pray God will bring back all your good memories of her repeatedly. With sympathy in your suffering, Sherry Hiley

Dearest Roger and Mona, I was so sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. She must have been a wonderful mom to have raised two of my favorite people. I wish I could offer my condolences in person, but with COVID-19 concerns, I’ll have to settle for this. May your mother’s memory always be a blessing for you both. Love to you.

Dear Scheibel and Henke Families, I am very sorry to hear of our loss of Rosie. Please know we are thinking of you during this difficult time. I am thankful for our shared memories with her... Over 30 years later, I still vividly remember our fun childhood visits together where she introduced me to excellent gnocchi and scratchers, experiences I will never forget. She had a long life well lived, and where lives pass, memories carry on forever. Love, Bryan
