I have so many special memories of my dear Aunt Rose. She was such a kind, loving, humble spirit whose memory I will cherish always. God bless all my wonderful Masek cousins and families as you lay her to rest.
I was deeply saddened to learn of Rose passing. My sincere sympathy goes out to all the Masek families. I will always remember her kind words. She was truly a loving, hard working, & religious lady. This earth has lost a very special human being, but the heaven above has gained a pure angel. May she rest in peace. God Bless you all during this sorrowful time and always.

To Rose’s family, I cannot believe that Rose has been gone almost a year, and I am just learning of it today. Even though so much time has passed, I want you to know that I always thought your mother was a lovely lady when I saw her at the Villa in David City. I also enjoyed meeting her family members there–she seemed to have raised a very nice family!! Then there was the time that I saw pictures on Facebook of Rose baking kolaches with a daughter and granddaughter from a number of years ago–so cool! You all must have so many wonderful memories! May God bless Rose’s soul and may God bless all of you.
