Aunt Rose and Uncle Luke. What a classic couple! Uncle Luke with that wonderful mischievous energy, and Aunt Rose sweet and lovely, just like a rose. I'm sure heaven's joy is up a notch or two with Luke and sister Angie (Mom), Albert, and now Aunt Rose together again. Knowing that seems to help ease the sadness of having to say good bye. God's peace to all of the Sim's family from Bert, Carol Megan and Ian Oelschig
