I remember my mom coming home from your wedding and going on and on about what a stunning bride arty had married. She described your long, red hair. Your gown and how you and arty were the most attractive bride and groom she had ever seen. Now I was very young at that time but I clearly remember how happy she was for both of you. And I think as each guest left, they received the news paper! Rose I believe that Jesus prepared a very special place for you 💞. God Bless you and your family.

We are sending you nothing but prayers and love to your family. Although I never had the opportunity to meet Rose. I know how very much Charli loved her and had the honor of hearing such beautiful stories about her. Our family loves Artie and send you Artie and your entire family our deepest condolences. May you be blessed with peace, love, comfort, and everlasting memories.

It seems like a life time ago that I saw Rose. I remember her brogue and always laughing. If you were at a wedding you wanted to be at the table with Rose and Artie. So full of life. She was always so kind and loving. Rest in Peace Rose.
