  10. Words could never describe how awesome Rosalie was. You had to be in her presence to really understand. The Lord was her shepherd in life and now is her shepherd forever. He will walk with her in green pastures and they will sit beside quiet waters. Together they will enjoy great feasts of food. And sometimes the Lord will let her cook. There is nothing for her to fear anymore, for she has walked past the shadow of death and entered in to her heavenly mansion. Her cup overflows with peace and comfort and joy. She is dwelling in the house of the Lord forever. She leaves behind the greatest legacy of all: goodness and lovingkindness followed her all the days of her life. Thank you Rosalie for touching my life. I'll never be the same.
