So sorry to hear about the passing of Rose Marie, even though I hadn't seen her in 60 years, I remember her well while growing up in Florahome. Rose Marie and all of the Cook Family was loved by everyone. Prayers go out to all of the Cook and Champion Family, Alice Mae, Fredna &Ruth. May God bless each of you.

Rose and I were best friends and step cousins, we shared so much together all thru school. We graduated together in 1962 and when Rose and Carl got married i was her bridesmaid. Over the years as we had our families and our different paths we took, we did not see each other very much, but we new each of us were only a phone call away and we always felt connected by our everlasting friendship. Just a few days before Rose passed away I had memories of our younger days and was going to call her, oh how I wish that I had, just to talk to her one last time. Lesson learned when you feel you should call a loved one please do as we never know if it will be the last time we talk or see them. I will always have so many good memories of Rose. Love you always my dear friend. Til we meet again love Kathy Cumbus
