Messages of Condolence

  1. To the family of Mary Rose. Please accept my sympathy on the passing of Mary. We enjoyed our wonderful vacation a few years back together and she would always be up to meeting me for lunch, dinner or just to lend a ear. She will be missed. She will be watching you from heaven. I am sure she can be found sitting by the beach. Love Nancy

  2. every life has a purpose to fill, a purpose which us humans can seldom infer. But she was a gift from heaven, whose purpose was to make this world understand what love, friendship, goodness, and humbleness was all about. Goodness belongs to heaven, and I know she is watching us from there, bestowing her beautiful smile upon us. I will miss you my friend, rest in peace.

  3. To the family of Mary Rose:
    Please accept our heartfelt sympathy in the loss that you must feel and please know we pray for your comfort
