I remember Rose and Bill spending many summer vacations with our grandparents. The last time I visited Rose at the Nursing Home with my Grandson, she was so proud to give him one of her plastic worms.
Betty, Bernie and families - I am so sorry for the loss of your mother, grandmother and friend. You have my deepest sympathies. There are no words to describe the loss. May God be with you and comfort you.
