Robert and I are truly sorry for the loss of your mother , I didn't know Rosemary that well ,but as a volunteer for the Peterborough hospice I saw Rosemary a number of times .She was the sweetest lady .She wanted to meet my Robert so she invited me to her 90th birthday party as long as I brought Robert so she could meet him. Rest now Rosemary, you are now reunited with Mac.
