Saying goodbye... The small town of Holly, Colorado laid to rest Rosemary Rosales, the 29-year-old mother who died in last week's tornado.

In the only Catholic church in the small town, hundreds gathered to say goodbye to Rosales. "…Una hija, hermana, esposa…" She was a daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend. Her sisters each took a turn to remember Rosales. "We can never say goodbye. She will forever be missed," said one sister.

Rosemary's family sat in the front pew, including her 3-year-old daughter and husband, Gus who are still recovering from their injuries from the tornado. Her 7-year-old son sat not far from them. "Her family was her pride and joy," said her sister.

"I'm not going to say goodbye to Rosemary because when my time comes, we'll be united again," another sister said. "My parents didn't lost a daughter, they gained an angel."
