Condolence & Memory Journal

Rosemary, Ted, Vivian & Paul Lang, Lydia & Chuck Kreps and Theresa Kline (who passed away on Monday) and I spent many Saturdays together at the local AARP meetings in Arabi, LA and we all were members of many social clubs. Many good times were shared by us all, playing Pitty Pat and other fun card games. I am sorry I did not find out about her passing until today. She will be deeply missed.

Ted and Keith and Families,
My brother Ken told me about your mother's passing. Memories go back as far as our youth and stopins at 1030 Piety. Dale and I also remember her as "Aunt Rosemary" teaching crafts at Children's Camp in the 1960s. Before Katrina chased us up to Minnesota I (and sometimes Dale) had the joy of visiting her and your dad as one of St. Paul's representatives visiting shutins. Those were always memorable and enjoyable visits. She was always faithful to her Lord and Savior. When we would get back to New Orleans for a visit I would get to visit with her on Sunday mornings in the church basement after services and she was always as friendly and pleasant as ever. As she is now reunited with your dad our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Ronald and Dale Wegener
