I remember all the fun times we had together on the way and in the park at Cedar
Point with our beloved Aunt Rose :).
We went down for a couple days with Uncle Bob and my parents & my brother,
Scott. U. Bob would grab us from behind in the roller coasters & say "Now your in for it!! There's no going back now!!! " And he'd laugh so loud. Aunt Rose & my Mom (Rose's sister Sylvia ) would both scream all the way down the first big hill... !
We'll miss your laughter A. Rose... Love you lots!!
