The butterflies flutter
Lifting our Sister high
The only thing that falls is the tears that we cry
Remembering how you taught our family to lean on each other
Like when you became a mom to your brothers
And as your feet hit the streets of gold
In the hands of Jesus that you hold
We'll remember the words you spoke so true
How friendship and love are the greatest virtues
Remembering that the cure wasn't medicine or faith
But you were healed when you stepped through the arched gate
By: Skyler Jones

“Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.”

    Rosie was such a wonderful person. We are so happy to have known her as a Sister and Friend.
    We hope that all can find strength in our Heavenly Father's promise that we can be reunited with her and others who gave fallen asleep in death. John 11:11.
    By means of a resurrection when death will be no more Revelation 21:3-4, John 5:28. This is the hope that Rosie had and firmly believed in.
    What a wonderful day that will be !
    May this precious hope that awaits us, with the love of your family and friends, bring you a measure of comfort now and in the days ahead.

    Kristina and family, I wish I could change things and bring her back for you. Just be comforted to know she is happy and healthy in heaven. She is sitting up there waiting for everyone in Heaven! Nothing, but time takes away some of the sorrow, but know she is fine and blessed by God.
    Love you dearly

    Arlene and family, I was so sad to hear this. I have known Rosita since I was 20 years old. That was a very long time ago that we met. I didn't see her for many years but had the pleasure of getting reacquainted when I lived back in Ruidoso a few years ago. She always had the sweetest smile and was just a lovely person. I know your family will miss her dearly but she is now back with your Mother and your Dad. Only those left behind are sad. May you find comfort in knowing that someday you will be with her again.

    Arlene and family,
    I'm at a loss for words to express my deep sorrow. Rosita was the best of the best and I will forever remember her laughter, kindness and the love she had for her family and friends. God bless and keep you all.
