In memoriam Rosemarie Dorothea M Syrjala

We all missing Rosemaries sweet heart

Psalms 23:1-3 A PSALM OF DAVID. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makea me lie down In Green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me In paths of righteousness for his name sake.
