To the Family of my Dear Sister-in-Law Rosalie. I was very sad to hear that "Rose" left us so quickly. We shall all miss her and we will remember all the good times. She had a great sense of humor and loved to get out and about to do things she loved to do. I know she loved her Family. May God bless all of you and my thoughts and prayers are with you always. May she rest in peace. She will live on in our hearts forever. Love all of you so much. Your Aunt Jean Billbe-Menendez
