Rose, I will miss your smile, kindness and loving nature. You've filled a hole in my heart for a long time as a substitute mother and I want you to know that I love you very much. Thank you for being my friend and allowing me to share part of your life for over 25 years.
John Sr. and Chris I love you very much and I wish I could take away the pain of losing Rose. I share it with you.
Love, Diane

Although we were first cousins, I lived in California and we did not see much of each other over the years. But, I am so sorry for your loss.
