Harold and family;
Sorry to hear about Rosie.  She was such a neat person.  Janet Clavell and I had planned on coming to the calling tonight, but was unable to make it as the road conditions were very bad.
You are all in our prayers; may God give you peace and comfort.

Jimmy, Jenny, & Jeff,
   We are so sorry to hear about Aunt Rosie. She was a terrific lady. Always bubbly & happy. I was at their wedding in 1950. It was lovely. I know she will be greatly missed. Much love, Cousin Barbara & husband Charles.

Jenny, Jim, Jeff and Harold:

I have such great memories of your mom (and family) growing up.  I know you know she is in a much better spot right now and that she is back to her "old self".  She is probably sitting down just talking and laughing with God right now.  Please know that our prayers are with you all.  Janet (Wilhelm) Landwehr
