Our deepest condolences on your loss. You are all in our thoughts!

Dear Ellen, Brad, Susan and families;
I was very sad to learn of the passing of your dear mother. She was such a wonderful lady. I recall sitting and talking with her and your dad after we graduated and I joined the Navy. They always had time to listen and let me share my experiences.
Prayers of comfort and peace for the days to come.

Dear Britton Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your mother passing. She was an amazing lady and always one I remember as cheerfully volunterring for any task that needed to be done. I don't know how the church runs these days without women like Rose Britton - always there to get things done. She was such a nice person too. I am so sorry for your loss and I'll keep you and her in my prayers

To The Family and Friends of Rose
You have My Deepest Sympathy
My Prayers and Thoughts are with all of you
She was so friendly and special lady
Used to live in Rittman
God Bless all of you

Please accept my sympathy and prayerful support on the loss of Rose. I agree with Barb. Rose was there to help get things done! Enjoyed having her in the parish at St. Anne's in Rittman a few years ago. I was able to see Rose at Danbury in early spring, as I discovered her room, when I was visiting my sister, who was next door. May wonderful memories keep her spirit alive! Peace!

I'M SO SORRY YOU LOST YOUR MOM.
I PRAY YOUR TEARS WILL QUICKLY TURN TO TO HAPPY MEMORIES. YOUR MOM WAS ALWAYS SO GOOD TO ME. IF IT WEREN'T FOR HER EGG SALAD SANDWICHES SHE MADE FOR YOUR LUNCH EVERYDAY IN HIGH SCHOOL,I WOULD HAVE STARVED. YOUR FAMILY ALWAYS WELCOMED ME. I'M SENDING PRAYERS AND LOVE TO YOU.
