On behalf of 2016 ANEC steering committee, we thank you for supporting us and for all you have done for our community. Rest in peace until we meet again."

"Dear Handmaids and family of my beloved Sister Rose,

It is with a heavy heart that I write to you to express my condolences for the loss of my dear friend Sister Rose.  Many of you may have heard of our family through sister but allow me to give you a small glimpse of what she meant to us.  My wife and I met sister close to 20 years ago in a providential encounter on our way to Rome .  Adriana and I were excited since it was our first visit to Rome and as Catholics we anticipated with great joy being at the center of Catholicism.  Little did we know that on that very day we would be blessed to meet a simple nun that would bring countless blessings to my family and others along the way.  I will never forget the smile on sister's face as she boarded the train and asked if it was ok to sit with us.  The cabin was empty so we enjoyed each other's company sharing stories and asking her religious questions which she graciously answered.  As was her custom she expressed a care and a joy with two perfect strangers which only can come from the love of Christ.  

It was with sister that we were introduced to Divine Mercy and through Divine Mercy that my youngest daughter Ana and her little girl as she called her, would through the grace of God be cured of her Ventricular Septal defect.  After that encounter and once she was transferred to the United States sister became our friend and a special member of our family.
She was present at every important family event.  The happy ones and the sad ones.  She was there at the high school graduations and present when we lost Adriana's mother to cancer in 5 short weeks.  

I am sure I don't have to tell you how special she really was.  She was cheerful, loving, caring, faithful, obedient to mention a few of her attributes.   She edified those she approached.  You could not help but sense her faith.  In my own case she inspired me to grow in my faith and in my vocation as a father and as a Catholic. She was a true Handmaid of the Lord.

To her family I want to express our gratitude for having shared her with us and with all of those people that she came in contact with as she went about living her vocation.  Although I have never met you we know you through sister who in spite of the distance always spoke about you with great love and affection.  Know that we are eternally connected as family members of Sister.

May sister rest in peace and may the light of Christ shine upon her forever.

In Christ
Ernesto, Adriana Sosa and family"

"FROM: FR. Vitalis Anyanike Wednesday, Oct 19, 2016

I am deeply sad for this untimely death of our dear Sister Rose. She was very devoted to ACCCRUS and contributed to the growth of our organization. I pray God's blessings on her and may the Lord whom she loved and served grant her eternal rest. I will offer Masses for her and  for her family. My condolences to her family and to her religious family the Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus. Fr. Vitalis."

"The shock brought by the news of your death was a big one. I can't stop singing the song "Persons come into the fiber of our lives and then their shadow fades and disappears. 'All I ask of you is to remember me - as loving you' was your song to us before you left us in Sacramento. But how can we forget you. Even death cannot make us forget you. Wish I can get in the entire song. Your unconditional love of people, your zeal, patience, forgiving heart, encouragement, just name it, you had it all. My kids, your kids are asking why? Philippians 2:8 will not stop coming to my mind, the only reason I say maybe it's meant to be. Heaven has gained an angel. You are in good hands. You pray for us and we pray for you. It is our believe that there is another fellowship in heaven. Till we meet to part no more, rest in perfect peace"

This tribute was added by Fr. Mike Ume on 22nd October 2016

"Dear Sister In Christ,
Your enthusiasm for the ministry is contagious, You are ready and willing to work for the Lord. Your sense of collaboration is refreshing and inspiring. Your wonderful sense of collaboration in ACCCRUS both at the national and state level is unparalleled. As we Catholics pray, "God of holiness and power, accept our prayers on behalf of your servant Rose Ereba; do not count her deeds against her, for in her heart she desired to do your will. As her faith united her to your people on earth, so may your mercy join her to the angels in heaven, Amen,"

This tribute was added by Sr. Josephine Ngama on 22nd October 2016

"My dear sister Rose,
The news of your death was a shock to me. You were such a good soul, radiating God's love through your smiles and deeds. I have not and will never forget my first encounter with you over 30 years ago in PH when the Lord through your simplicity drew me to the HHCJ religious family. Your simple life and genuineness are the legacies you left behind. Rest in the bosom of your divine spouse until we meet again where there will be no more sorrow or death.
Sr. Josephine Ngama, HHCJ."

"FROM: ANA RAMIREZ-PALMER
Dear Sister Felicia,  I am heartbroken at this very sad news.  Sr. Rose was a good friend.  While we were students at the University of Sacramento, a graduate theological institute, Sr. Rose and I and one other student formed a study group so we could help each other in our theological and philosophy studies.  We became good friends.  We met weekly at my house and Sr. also became a close friend of my mother.  She gave my mother spiritual support during her last days and comforted me after my mother's passing.  My husband and I were very fond of our good friend, Sr. Rose Ereba, and learned much from her life and her faith.

Please know that Sr. Rose had many friends here in the Sacramento Diocese where she was well known.  Our prayers are with you and your sisters and with her family.   God bless you, Ana Ramirez-Palmer"
