Rose and Warren were two of the most wonderful and devout Christians we have ever met. We are so thankful to have been friends with them in Sunsites, Az. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. They had some wonderful parents and Brenda has been such a good caregiver.

What a dear sweet lady. I am so thankful we had the privilege of knowing Rose. She has reached her heavenly home and is reunited with Warren. How glorious that must be. She has received her reward from which all of the family can get peace and comfort. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
