December 29 , 2011

Grandma Rose surrounded by sons and daughters (She always felt each daughter in law was beloved as her own daughters.) slipped peacefully beyond the veil, “taken home
to the God who gave her life.” Shortly before she passed away, we were grateful for the privilege to sing to her; she loved to have President sing “I Am a Child of God” and “How Great Thou Art” as well as other favorites. Mom-Grandma Rose always encouraged the best within us. The feeling of her life is captured in her obituary: We feel increasing gratitude for the Atonement of Jesus Christ and that through Him "death may have no sting." Grandma Rose displayed a picture of the Savior as the Shepherd in her room and often pointed us not just to the picture but to the Shepherd.
