So sorry to hear Aunt Rosie has passed. Although I did not get to know her as an adult, I do remember the love she showed me as a small child when my family would come down to WV. She will always and forever be in our hearts and memories. Love you Great Aunt Rosie!

I am very sorry for your loss. We can look forward to the time when “no resident will say: ‘I am sick.’” (Isaiah 33:24) And God will actually put an end to death when he will “swallow up death forever.” (Isaiah 25:8)
