  1. Aunt Rose was a fun, loving, and caring aunt and mother. As a child, I remember her, Uncle Richard and cousin Dianne, all gathering with all of the other cousins, aunts, uncles, parents, and Grammy. We had many nice times together. Although time passes and we all get so busy with our lives and special challenges, our memories will sustain us when sad times arrive. With such a big family, there seems to be many more sad times lately. Let’s all pray together for Aunt Rose and for all of our family members to have peace and tranquility in the days ahead.
    Love, Kathy and Greg Huntington ( Dunleavy )
