Condolence & Memory Journal

Thinking of you today as Christmas draws near. Always enjoyed the holiday season at Ravenswood and my time with you. My annual purchase of one of your carved Santa's for my collection was so much fun and a celebrated event. More importantly, you loved me like family and treated me like a son. Rosemary, I'll always love you, our times together and especially your talks and visits. You were pure joy to me and I can see why God wanted you home with Him. Just missing you today....

Dear Aunt Rosemary I wish I could have got to know you more, as my Dad and brother told me wonderful stories of you with your horses, your art and place. The #'s were disconnected that we tryed. It's interesting that I was really trying to make an effort since January, and it seems I just missed you. I remember talking with you last year, and how happy i was that you were the "Good Big Sister", as we have that in common. I'm very sad I didn't get a chance to know you much more. I loved you instantly, as you're family. I can only hope and pray I get a chance to meet Jennifer, Melanie, and their families. I'm so happy you found your love Don Carroll.
Blessings and healing to your beautiful family, and Great Memories. They must be missing you greatly.
Mrs Roxanna Ross-Morris

Jenny, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a wonderful, special lady. I remember all the times we would go to your house when we were in High School.and then Barb and I were always in her shop looking for some treasure, and most of the time, after long conversations we left with treasures. Please take care of yourself and remember I'm always here if you need me.... LovemJewell

I have many times enjoyed long visits at Ravenwood, I think I enjoyed talking with Rosemary as much if not more than I enjoyed hunting for treasures in her store. My sympathies to her friends and family.
