    Dear Sanford and family. I'm so sorry to hear about Rose. All of you are in so many of my fondest childhood memories. Rose had such an infectious laugh and was the BEST cook! We share birthdays and even after I was married and moved away, she'd send me cards and letters for a number of years afterwards. She was truly a special lady. Sending hugs to you all. 💗

    Rose was such a hard worker, a go getter! My condolences to Sanford, the kids, grand kids, in-laws and outlaws. I always loved watching Sanford and Rose dance, like floating on a cloud, so magical ❤️ Rest In Peace Rose ❤️

    We are very sorry to learn that Rose has died. She was one of the first people that we met when we moved to Belloy in 1978, as Gwen and Debbie were often at the Aley's. Rose was warm and loving while being no nonsense and practical at the same time. She played a lead role in her community. She will be missed. Love to her family, Deb and Dave Meuser

    I am so sorry to hear of Rose's passing. My sympathies to you, Sanford and all the family. Rose made the best pickles and 40 years later I can still remember Gwen and I eating a whole jar full after coming home from a dance. Hugs to you all.

    Oh no this is terrible to hear. I was meaning to drop in for coffee. Such a close friend of our family. A down to earth, extremely hard worker, and caring person. Our deepest sympathy to the family.
