I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I could attend but recently had knee replacement surgery. Jim, you and Rose have been like parents to me since the day I moved in next door. I love you both and if there is anything you need just ask. Dean and I are here for you. You both have done so much for me that I could never thank you enough. Prayers and hugs through this difficult time.

I'm so sorry to hear of Rose passing away. She was so amazing, I loved her humor and I loved talking with her. Prayers are with the family as you go through this rough time. I'm so sorry.
