Dear Holy Rosary Staff and Parents,
I want to take this time and write this note to all of you.  I want to say "Thank you" from the bottom of my heart.  All your Moral Support, Prayers, and Countless Hugs has been amazing.  These past two years has been difficult for our Family but your love has helped lighten the pain.  From meal trains, rides, gift cards to helping at the funeral services.  Holy Rosary Staff and Parents are truly a blessing.  Seeing all the staff and parents at the funeral service made me feel like things were going to be okay.  Yes, Mayra can never be replaced but I feel like I have an army behind me helping me along the way.   Mayra and I brought our children to Holy Rosary for the education and for spiritual growth, but we got way more than we imagined.  We got another family.  Once again Thank you.  We can never repay you.  But I will do my best to pay it forward.  God Bless.
The Rubio Family.
