  2. Mrs. Anderson was an irreplaceable and priceless friend to my mother and our family for decades. Both her and Mr. Anderson were there for my mom &dad when we learned my brother Glen was dead. She took in for a few days during the aftermath as I was only 11. Mrs. Anderson was also there for my mother when my father got sick and after he passed. She continued to be there for my mother until her illness prevented it. My mother never forgot her friend Rosie. Calling and writing her often. One of my mother’s last requests was for someone to *Please Tell Rosie I’m going”. I myself will forever be indebted to her kindness and love she gave to my family. I am sad to realize I have now lost every one of my mother figures from my childhood. We must all remember she is no longer suffering and is at long last resting in peace with her loved ones in Heaven! My prayers and thanks to her family ( this is the same as my Sister Fran Ruoss said do to this is so so true she was her BEST FRIEND )

  3. What can I say, except that Rosie was my Mother’s best friend and such a special part of all our lives. I used to love all the stories my Mom would tell me about their “escapades”. Your Mother was such a kind, gentle woman who gave so much to others. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
    Love,
