I will miss you so very much. You were like a sister to me and we did so many things together. You took care of my children when they were little. Again, I will miss you so very much. I used to call you Rose and you used to call me Blanch. How funny was that. Love you with all my heart and someday I will be with you in Heaven and we can share good times once again. Amen.


I Love you aunt Maryann. I’m going to miss talking to you so much.
