Bill, Terry & Dayle Harris - March 21, 2020

We were so sorry to hear about your loss. Your mom was always a good friend of dad's while at Rosewood. She always looked out for him, and everytime we met her in the hall, she would update us on some of the mischief dad was getting himself into. We often speak fondly of your mom, Dorothy, Helga & dad playing cards and other activities as they enjoyed themselves amongst their Rosewood family. Our deepest sympathies and condolences.
