Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Rosemary, It is so sad to hear of your mothers' passing. I have many fond memories of your mom & dad visiting at my parents house. My dad would get so exciting when his sister was coming.....even after we were all married.....he would call everyone of us (all 6!) to let us know when she was coming so we could all be there. And the trips to the annual picnic at your moms house was a pretty special event for him! Traveling was not one of my parents pastimes! I know she will be greatly missed by your family but know she is in a wonderful place with your dad and sister. My condolences to everyone. Love, Veronica
