You may not realize it, but Allen & Rose touched my life through my parents. Allen has been a long time friend of my parents. My Mom knew him from elementary school and my Dad met him in high school. Later when they were in college Allen & Rose set my Mom & Dad up on a blind date. He & Rose also helped my parents out when our family of eight moved from FL to IN by keeping my two sisters and myself for a week… they had three or four children themselves. I didn’t make it easy on them because I cried a lot, but they were wonderful to us. My parents have always kept in touch with Allen & Rose. They came to my parents 50th Anniversary and my parents went to their 50th. I’m grateful my parents had such good friends.
Dear Rosie and family,
Our hearts and prayers go out to all of you. Words escape us when we try to convey our deepest sympathy. We hope the many fond memories you all share, sustain you in the days ahead. God bless you all.
Barry, Julie, Jay, and Baylee Birkmeyer
