    Cousin Rose was one of the sweetest persons you would ever encounter. Her calm and welcoming demeanor would warm your heart. I am so sorry I cannot be there for her funeral, but I hope to see her once again in heaven amongst the angels.

    I met Rose at Hickey Freeman when I was fresh out of college. She was a sweet lady and we worked in the same office for a time. After I left work to raise my family, I kept in touch with Rose and enjoyed many visits with her. We even took a drive one fall to visit our former boss, Norm Wilcox, and his wife Annette in Naples, NY and we had lunch together. I will always remember Rose’s gentleness and kindness to me.
