Bob and Rosemary have impacted the lives of everyone around them and we wish to follow in their footsteps. On this page you will find quotes that people have said about them. You can also read many of the letters that friends and family wrote to them for their 60th Wedding Anniversary in 2001.
"Aunt Rose has never forgotten to send a card or note for a special time in my life."
"We watched as you comforted the sick, the grieving, the injured, and the dying. We watched as you mailed cards, letters, cookies, newspapers, [and] care packages around the world to people who needed and appreciated your caring actions."
"Rosemary and Bob have their always present, positive attitude and can always see the good side in every happening."
Bob and Rose have represented what is fun and good about our family. They have made the effort to always be present at family weddings, reunions, funerals, graduations, parties, and the like for as long as I can remember.
When my mother passed away they were there for us. They kept us busy. They were always there for you.
[Pictures I have] help me to realize that my Grand-dad is a helluva good man and with the grace of God I will follow in your footsteps. You set for me an example of what a man should be, what a husband should be and what a father should be.
After all the years of being around the two most caring and generous people, I realize that I couldn't ask for more in my life. They have taught me so many things about life, love, and family.
"You always look for the bright, and the pleasant to make sure that side steadily grows and increases. You both enjoy life and that reflects to all of you family and friends with each
smile and hug that you so lovingly give."
We would like to say that we could not have asked for better neighbors. It is the little things that they do that make them
"When I think of you,
I think of caring, compassion, and an undying love which you have for everyone around you..."
"Thanks for the support, encouragement, guidance, generosity, your time, kindness, and most of all your love through the years."
They were there when we needed them most
Than you so much for the great wonderful impact you have made in my life. God truly blessed me when He gave you to me.
I realize how much you do for so many people and are "right there" when people are in need of help.
The visits Aunt Rose and Uncle Bob made to our home filled the air with laughter and good cheer.
Your clarity and sense of purpose shine as a guiding light in our family. A beacon that never falters. One thing is for sure, your eternal purpose is to see to it that everyone is happy.
"... you took family members into our home through the years because they couldn't stay alone, the nursing home visits you made..."
"You both have always been there when someone needs your help, you've helped so many people through the years."
You are both a loving and giving couple who have always made us feel so welcome in your home
Rosemary has always been a very kind person and a very lovely person. She is always there to help.
Bob and Rose have ALWAYS made me feel special.
