To the Zukkers (Greg, Lori, Michelle, Christy & Jerry) and their families
I was lucky enough to know your mom since Greg and I became friends at 6 years old. Your mom always treated me with kindness, inquisitiveness and at times impromptu spiritual teachings that made her so unique to me. I will always fondly remember walking in your house on 5th street with her warm greeting and your dad telling me to stay out of the fridge. 🙂 Somebody once said our parents are only rented to us for a short period of time and we must take full advantage of them while they’re here. I’m sure you all did just that. Knowing she was so close to God while she walked on this earth should give you comfort that she is lifted to paradise while she waits for the rest of you. My upmost condolences to all of you…J

Rosemary was a verry kind, compassionate, and loving woman. You could see her love for Jesus in her actions and deeds. She was a good mother who prayed faithfully. She will be missed greatly, but I’m glad she is at peace now and awaiting the day when Jesus wakes her up. What a reunion that will be.
