My heartfelt sympathies to each of you as you travel this road of grief.  We learned to know your parents through Bethany Christian Services when we were foster parent’s and loved on Zachary when he was a newborn.  Your parent’s were fun to visit with during BCS’s picnics each summer and see Zachary’s yearly growth.  My love to each of you and may God’s peace carry you on this journey.  Love ~ Elta Nissley

I got to know Amos and Rosemary almost 50 years ago when we were in the Navy going to Nuclear Power School in Bainbridge MD. They took me and another friend of ours (Walt)under their wings and instilled their Christian values in me for which i am forever grateful. Walt and i would buy groceries and bring them over to Amos and Rosemary’s and she would cook us suppers.. We always bought more than what was needed and left what wasn’t used as the Navy didn’t pay so well for families so in the end we both won, they got food and we got home cooked meals. Our paths crossed alot so I got to know them both very well. We were both in Hawaii on different Submarines but we had some time together during our off crew times. Rosemary even taught me how to make banana bread using the bananas from the tree in their back yard. So many good memories.. Because of them i know when its my time to go home to Jesus they will be there welcoming me home just like Amos welcomed her. Prayers and condolences to family and friends. She will truly be missed.

It was a pleasure meeting and getting to know Rosemary and her late husband, through the Fresh Air Fund.  We did many bus trips with Rosemary, Amos, and Zach to NYC in the 90’s. Our family loved traveling with the Kinerts and learning about the entire family, including their pets.  We will forever appreciate their warmth and friendship that has lasted throughout the years!  We just want you to know that we share in your sadness. Both Rosemary and Amos, will be greatly missed!  May happy memories bring you peace and comfort at this difficult time. We will always hold dear those fun bus trips to and from NYC! Our prayers and deepest sympathies are with the entire Kinert Family!!

My kids loved going to Rosemary’s house to play. She had the coolest toys (per them) and they loved to ride around her yard on her green, battery-powered car. Although to young to really understand, they still asked if they were going to be able to go to Rosemary’s house to play. I feel they will always keep those memories with them.
To Mary Kay – “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” – Revelation 21:4
I love you all ❤️
