Rest In Peace dear Rosemary I’ve always treasured the memory of the Friday mornings we used to meet at your house . The laughs and comaraderie we used to enjoy. My prayers are with Pat and all the family. with love much from Pam Shanley
My love to all the family, especially Pat who will miss her most.
Since my early teenage years I have spent many wonderful times with Rosemary and, later, with her, Pat, and her family and friends. We shared interests in gardening, roses in particular, and in horses. We weren’t together often but when we came together it was as though minutes had passed.
She was a joy to be with, a remarkable person and a great loss.
Dear Pat and Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. We hope all the good times together can always be with you and she will always have a special place in your hearts.
