    Dear Tom,. Sondra, Kyle, and families:

    Your beautiful pictures of Kay above are such sweet reminders of such an honorable life. I am saddened for you all in the days ahead as you have suffered a loss which cannot ever be measured; yet I rejoice with you in that your beautiful Mother and wife is totally alive, and completely healed forever now just as we remember her; except now she is so much better, since she is forever perfect!! Our love, thoughts, and prayers follow you in the difficult days . and the “firsts” ahead of you, as you remember and reflect upon such a saint.

    Rosemary and I taught next door to each other for 14 years. During that time, I was a young, inexperienced teacher and newly wed. She was truly my mentor as she listened to my everyday concerns of wanting to be the very best teacher and wife I could be. I will never forget her encouragement and Christian witness to me daily. I am deeply saddened, but rejoice that she has received her heavenly reward. God bless and keep you all during this time of transition. I have lost a very close friend.

    Rosemary was such a wonderful teacher, mentor, and friend. I was so blessed to get to work closely with her over the years. We had such fun sharing an office together. I loved her infectious smile and laugh. I saw that a few weeks ago when I last visited. She will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with you Tom, Sondra, and Kyle. You were blessed with a wonderful and loving wife and mother. She was certainty proud of all of you! I know she is smiling down at all of us now. Till we meet again my dear friend!

    I have the fondest memories of Kay and the Mosier family. From way back when I was just two years old and Kay would baby sit me and read to me and play with me on the floor. Great memories later in life too, at an Eagle Scout award ceremony and even recently at a lunch just a couple of years ago. I know we will all miss her but the memories are all very good ones and will do until we meet again in Glory with no more crying, no more sickness or sadness. I will be praying for the family during this time of great loss.
    God Bless you all-

    I have many fond memories of Rosemary. Our trip to Florida, our time spent teaching together at Old Center, and many more that I could mention. It was a blessing to have had her in my life. May God be with you. Prayers for Tom and the family.

    So sad to hear of her passing — I remember having her as my teacher many years ago. She was the only one that I had that ever understood my test phobia and helped me thru it that year. May God comfort you all knowing she is with him!
