Dear Amberg Family, You are always in my thoughts and prayers but especially now with the loss of Rose. You are each a unique and cherished legacy to her. Much Love, Maggie



My condolences to the Amberg family, as I am very sorry for your loss. I hope that the memories you've shared with Rosemary will be a source of comfort at this difficult time. Also very comforting are the words at Psalm 147:3 which says, "He[God] is healing the brokenhearted ones, and is binding up their painful spots." Jehovah God will help you get through this tough time, and provides a sure hope for the future. (John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:29)

Mary Anne and Dan Troy

Peace to Rosemary and to John, a deacon couple whose service and love inspired many both in and out of the deaconal community,
