We are praying for the family. We love you in the Lord.
To the family of Roswitha:
Roswitha and I have been friends and neighbors for more than 20 years. I will miss seeing and talking with her about her family and I have learned so much about Germany. She was always concered about her neighbors and was a strong voice as a member of our condo board and at the meetings. I will personally miss all the great Christmas goodies she would bake and share with others. I miss her already and know she’s comfortable now in heaven. She will always be in my prayers.
Dear Arlene, Colin and family, We have such fond memories of Oma, and will miss her smile. All our love Sue, Andy, Hayley and Chloexxx
Roswitha was a very interesting employee with whom I enjoyed listening to some of her past experiences. I enjoyed working with her. She always had a pleasant smile.
I was very sorry to hear of Mrs. Moe’s death. I knew she had been fighting illness for a long time, and it seemed she was on the mend. I enjoyed talking to her, the little that I did: she was a customer of ours (At Your Door Automotive) and there were several times we worked on her car. I know she will be missed greatly by her family. My prayers are with her and her loved ones.
