We will certainly miss Sister Rosemary at Cornerstone. She was a wonderful lady at our church and blessed everyone with her beautiful greeting cards for birthdays, get well, sympathy. We love you Rosemary and will miss you very much! Praying for the family for comfort at this time.

I have known Rosemary since she and her family moved in across the street from me at Lotus Lake in Waterford. Scott and my son were playmates until they moved to the canal off of Williams Lake. Rosemary and I shared our birthdays together as I was also born on December 1st but was two years older. We have kept in contact all these years while she lived in Florida and got together for lunch every summer when she came up for her yearly visit. I will miss her terribly and my birthday won’t be the same. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family.
