    Rose Mary was a very special Lady. Her Christian walk was such a wonderful example to me and many others. She was always willing to talk about her relationship with the Lord and guide those of us on that asked. Prayers for Larry and all the family. Rose Mary will be missed.

    Larry, please accept my sympathy. I still remember being in her Sunday School class at Church of Christ in Christian Union on Maryland St.
