I am so sorry for your loss. Rose and I were good friends and shared a lot of laughs. We hung out and went out many times. Always a good time with her. I am currently out of town but my thoughts are with you all.

Sincerely sorry for the loss of the beautiful sweet soul that Rosemary had. She always went above and beyond to help people out when they came to her at the Salvation Army here in East Chicago. I know she will truly be missed. So glad I had the pleasure of getting to know her. Keeping the family in prayer. Rest in peace beautiful lady.

My deepest condolences to Rosemary's family. Rosemary was a wonderful, kind person who spread sunshine when she walked into a room. It had been a joy working with her on various projects throughout the years. I will miss her and I know the Salvation Army will miss her presence.

So sorry for the loss of your loved one. It is never easy to lose a loved one but the Bible has promised we will see our loved ones again. God has the desire to fulfill the promise of a resurrection. He has a “yearning” to restore life to the people who have died. (Job 14:14, 15) For more information and comfort from God’s word, please visit our website at www.jw.org.
