  1. From all of the Rosens please know that you are in our prayers where we ask God to comfort your grief and to let your mom live on in your hearts.

  2. Aunt May Jane, as I knew her (however briefly) through my Lovely Bride Allison Lipton, was truly a fantastic lady. A dry wit, observant nature and always a kind word for those she met

    Her personality was really evidenced to me last year when we took her (and some family) to lunch at a nearby golf course grill. AMJ was recognized by a colleague from her hospital volunteering and the reunion was a joy to watch. Two folk who really appreciated and cared for each other and their work. The mutual respect and happiness was clearly evident. Sincere friendliness…a pleasure to see!

    AMJ was Lovely Bride’s ‘favorite aunt’ … a mentor, a friendly face growing up. Aunt May Jane will be sorely missed in our home.

  3. It was a pleasure knowing Miss Aunt May Jane. She is definitely an inspiration to all of us. May you Rest In Peace beautiful angel. I am so happy that Allison took the girls to Colorado this summer so they can spend time with her before she left this earth. Love to the family.

  4. To Mark, Mary, boys and family,
    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother and Grandmother. Jane was a wonderful friend to Al and I for so many years. I loved her dearly. Each time I would see her, I felt such caring and warmth. She was always so concerned about Zach and had such a unique way of making me feel better about things.
    It is true, she was so positive and I never heard her say an unkind thing to or about anyone.
    I pray that your sadness and grief can soon be replaced by the wonderful and fond memories that she left with all of us.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you all,
    Becky Alber
