So sorry for the loss of your mother and wife. I worked a lot of years with Rosie and was her visiting teacher for a few years. Rosie was always a pleasure to visit with. She cared very much for her family and was always bragging on what a good cook Ray was. My Heavenly Father bless and comfort your family in the coming days and months.

My condolences to the Ferguson family. Rosie was a great mentor to me during the time I worked with her at the Pina High School. Love and prayers to all.
