  1. So sorry to hear of Rose’s passing. We were her neighbors for 20 years. Frank was Rose’s right hand man. Always ready to help her with her garbage or any issues that arose. We did get to see her in the nursing home. RIP Rose!

  2. Rose was a patient of ours and I always remembered her. She was so sweet and had a gentle character to her. I always worried about her living alone and i’m glad upon reading the obituaries that she had neighbors who helped her. May she rest in peace with our lord.
