    What an incredible Lady! Part of our lives since we were born. Will be so missed. We know there was quite the celebration when she arrived in Heaven. Back together with Jim and our mom for a big night of dancing. So sorry for all she left behind as we know the loss is tremendous. But she took such pride in her children and grandchildren and couldn’t wait to give us the news of how well they were all doing. Rest In Peace Rose! Forever in our hearts! ☘️♥️☘️♥️☘️♥️☘️♥️☘️

    My thoughts and prayers are with you Rose Conway Flanagan and family, your Mum was a legend and her legacy will live on in her children and in her grandchildren and in the generations to come. Your Mum has certainly left her mark here on earth, they’ll all be waiting with excitement at the gates of heaven for her arrival and she will be reunited with her loved ones.
