We were both so saddened to hear of Rose's passing. She, your dad and you her children have always been like family to the Luciani's. Always there for all of us in good times and bad. Remember that it was you father, Joe who got Dad back into the swing of life after his business went south so many years ago. That will never be forgotten. Your mom, was always there and was like a sister to our Mom. I know that they are all somewhere in heaven with all of the old crowd happy and blessedly content. Rose had a long and wonderful life and we wish all of the family our heartfelt sympathy. Keep remembering all of the good time and we promise you that you Mom will always be with you! May God bless you during this difficult time! Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you!
Lovingly,
Mike and Dail Luciani

I have known Rose for over 70 years. My family visited her family in Endicott, NY back in early 1950s. We never crossed paths again until I met her at an Italian function in Raleigh. We have enjoyed many good times since with her and her family at her son Joe's home where he hosted several parties. She was the typical Italian mother always graceful, loving and friendly. My wife Vickie and I will always remember her and it was our pleasure to have know Rose and enjoyed her company over the years. God have mercy on her soul.
