Wall of Hearts for Rose

Family and Friends remembered Rose's anniversary by celebrating her life. The Rusch family joined the students at St. James Elementary School for a special mass on Friday, March 23rd. We released pink and white balloons at the rose garden in front of the school to honor Rose. Teachers decorated the foyer of the school with an angel, roses, pom poms and a picture of Rose. Friends read letters and poems during prayers each morning remembering their friend Rose.

Friends, family, students and teachers decorated the windows in Red Bank with paper hearts in honor of Rose. So many wonderful tributes. Rose will never be forgotten and is in the hearts of many. Here are a few of the wonderful tributes sent to the Rusch Family.

We thank you for keeping Rose in your hearts and for all of your prayers and support.
