To the Peters family, just know that you're Mother was a loving and caring person, not just too your family, but to everyone Rosemary knew. If you were over at the Peters house, it was like having a second Mom, because Rosemary would have it no other way. She was always gracious, and cared about knowing you as a person, and not just as a friend of the kids. At church Rosemary & August, would always shake your hand, give you a smile, and want to know how your day had gone. We pray that our Lord Jesus Christ, will bless the Peters family, and lighten the sense of loss you all are experiencing. But just know, that Rosemary and August, are now reunited in Heaven, and have an eternity of bliss, with our Almighty God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
