For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

Rosemary is my cousin and I (Chris) have many fond memories of us growing up in Galveston. I would go to my Aunt and Uncles house on 17th Street and visit many times. Her parents were my Godparents. She was a wonderful person and always had a smile and a kind heart. She would always call me Christy. She will be missed very much by all who knew her. With sadness and heartfelt sympathy

Aunt Rosemary's smile and great stories are what I will alway remember. She had such amazing and funny things to tell, when she talked about what God had done for her in all life's adventures it would bring tears to my eyes. She loved her family and our Lord. I will miss her, uncle Bobby & cousins I love you, my heart is sad for this loss in our family. Aunt Rosemary enjoy your new home.

I was a classmate of Rosemary & will always remember her for her courage in handling the trials God gave her. Even after 50 years of not always being in contact, she will always be a constent reminder of trusting in God's way. May she rest in Peace.
