I’m so sorry for your loss. I got to know Rosemary through the red hats she was always so nice. I have such wonderful memories of her. My prayers and thoughts are with you at this time.

My heart and prayers go to the Ballard family. I am so very sorry for your loss! Please find comfort from a scripture I’m sure you have read several times before but is personal to you now.
“And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) Jw.org
