    I’m so sorry to hear of Rosies passing. I know she will be dearly missed by all.
    Keeping you all in my thoughts.

    Our sincere sympathy goes out to all of you. I haven’t seen your Mom in some time. We spent quite a bit of time together when we were neighbors in Bay View…we enjoyed our times together. A wonderful lady and Mother. God bless you all.

    We send our deepest prayers and sympathy to your family! Your mother was always so kind to me and always remembered me over the years, it’s been a long time since grade school at St. Anne’s. May Roses Rest In God’s Eternal Peace.
    Love & May God Bless, Al & Jan Mott

Auntie will be Your Guardian Angel Forever! Now Her & Uncle can Dance Again! All Our Love, Don & Chris Aker

    To all of “Mom’s 7 Angels”, their spouses, and to all of her grandkids, our deepest sympathy and prayers at this time. She loved you all, and you were her pride and joy that continued to grow through out her life. I remember as a young kid of 5, when we moved in next door to all of you, in the good ole “Goulais Edition”. I always remember her pride in all of you young kids, the smiles that she had as she watched you all grow up and move onto adult hood, and then bless her and your dad with the young grandkids. Every time we saw her and your dad together, usually at a wedding celebration, I could still see that smile and pride that I had seen as a young kid as she watched over her 7 kids. You all were her pride and joy in life, and she was truly blessed. A few years back, my wife Janice and I , would enjoy the Friday night fish fry at the Stonehouse, and your mom and her sister Marguerite would be there like clock work, always having a great time together as the conversation would eventually turn to what was happening with her kids and grandkids. Yes she will dearly be missed by all of us who knew her, but the great memories of her will always be with us. God bless all of you. Gary & Janice Holland
