Curt, Sheryl and Jamie, So many great memories with your family. I seldom saw you Curt without Rose. She was always made me feel special when I saw her and so many times on my visits I would see you guys. Such a strong woman and a great listener. Sending Love, prayers and Hugs as you share the many memories.

Delores Bird:

Curt, Cheryl and Jamie, I was so sad to hear this news.

Our family paralleled yours in so many ways when we all first arrived in Rocky. And for a time we were close neighbours in two different locations in town. I have many great memories of those years. And now after not having any contact for a lot of years I am glad I saw and visited a bit with you at Market on Main in recent years when I visited in town.

This is going to be a tough time for you now but I hope that a lifetime of memories will stay with and comfort you.

My sincere condolences to your family.

Jack and Marilyn Hunt:

We were friends and neighbours for so many years and enjoyed many visits together. Our sympathy to you Curt and to your children and partners. Rose’s pain and troubles are all behind her now and we pray she is rejoicing with our Heavenly Father.

We were saddened to see that Rose had passed away. She was such a kind and wonderful person and we were so blessed to have known her for so many years. Although we spent the last 30+ years in Ontario, we would still try to find time to see Rose and Curt on our visits back. Curt, Sheryl, Jamie and Gillian, you are in our thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time. God bless you.

My first encounter with Rose was as a student of Curts, I was utilized as an occasional babysitter. Not long after that we worked together at the Rocky Hospital, for many years.

To Curt & Family,
If I remember correctly we both came to teach at Rocky High in 1967. Our paths have crossed many times in many ways since then. Memories of those moments will always be special to us. Rose has been amazing in all the times she has dealt with cancer.
