Praying GOD's peace and comfort her beloved family.  Thanking the LORD for her beautiful life and loving legacy Rosa leaves behind.

At our saddest times, GOD is our shield and the lifter of our heads, He is with us and becomes our peace. He lovingly carries every we cast upon HIM, because HE cares for each one of us.  May GOD be your ever present help in the hours, days, weeks, months and times to come.

“'Though the mountains be shaken
and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing
love for you will not be shaken nor my
covenant of peace be removed,' says
the Lord, who has compassion on you"
(Isaiah 54:10).

May the God of all peace divinely comfort
your hearts in this time of sorrow and transition.


In Loving Memory of Peggy

Like a gem, the light of Peggy’s life
Will sparkle in our hearts forever
Leaving behind a trail of pleasant memories
As rich as golden treasure.
She was someone so deeply loved
A rose to fragrance our lives
She leaves behind a legacy so true
And it continues to inspire.

I had the distinct honor and pleasure of working with Ms. Rosa for the first time this year.  She was one of the best teacher aides and finest humans with whom I have every worked.  Her style, class, work ethic, and kindness, always visible in her warm smile, were just some of her special qualities.  I was shocked and saddened to learn of her loss.  May her family be comforted by special memories of Ms. Rosa, and may she rest in peace.  Ms. Rosa will be missed...may her memory be a blessing.

I’ve known Rosa since we were children on Monroe Street.  She’s always been a very classy lady.  She was full of wisdom and one of the most honest people I’ve known.  She was a loving and caring mom to her son Philip.  She will truly be missed.  Sleep well my friend and neighbor, God has a beautiful helper Angel with Him now. 
I pray for your family to have the strength to heal them as they grieve for you.

Words, however kind,
Can't mend your heartache:
But those that care and share
Your loss wish you comfort
And peace of mind.
May you find strength in the
Love of family and in the
Warm embrace of friends.
With deepest sympathy.
