    Uncle Bill, it is with great sadness that I express my deepest sympathy, Aunty Rose was such a wonderful, caring, funny, loving, genuine person. I will always cherish the memories I have of Aunty Rose as a child and my older years. Aunty Rose always had kind words to people. I remember how she would always say how beautiful I am as she touched my face. She is now up in heaven with Aunty Marge and Grandpa. Hugs and kisses Uncle Bill and family.
