My dearest Rose, I will miss you so much. It is very hard for me to comprehend that I will not see your beautiful face any longer, or listen to your most prayerful thoughts. My consolation is knowing that you are sitting on Jesus's lap as you always wanted to. and asking Him a million questions. I am sure Our Lady is close by smiling and admiring her obedient "little Rose."

I love you Rose "Pray! Pray! Pray! for us. Thank you for everything..
