    La Crescenta CaThank you Aunt Rosie for all the memories you have given us over all these years. Will miss the home made rolls that I just found out were not ” home made ” all these years. I still won’t be able to make the ” Bridgeford Home Made Rolls ever.” Will will miss the casino runs,Norms, the 99 cent store,N. Hollywood Ralphs and your cookies and coffee. We all loved you and will miss you so much. Thank you for so much love.
    Love,Donna and all of the Goldsworthy,Maurice,James,and Arrow California ” Dura ” family.

    Grand Forks ND
    We never lose the ones we love,
    for love itself lives on,
    and the joy we knew together
    is never really gone.
    It lives in precious memories,
    of those who were so dear,
    memories that bring comfort,
    and keep our loves ones near.

    Aunt Rose lives forever in every heart she touched.

    From the family of her brother-in-law George Thompson (1926-1996) his wife Therese (1930-2006) and their children George Thompson, Rayanne (Pat) Lavery and Laura (Douglas) Munski
