Dear Rose,
Heaven gained an incredible blessing the day you were called home. I remember when you spoke with Adrienne about me you referred to me as “the pretty one,” but Rose, you are the “beautiful one & one class act.”
Your love of life, smile & caring compassionate nature are unsurpassed by your devoted love & support of you daughter, Adrienne. (Which is something I always admired). There has been no greater true love than the love you two shared. May you continue to watch over her, beam with pride & know that we wish you peace in heaven.

Love, Joyce

We were neighbors for 47 years....Rose at 456 and the Walsh family at 452. Over the years, I came to know and love this daughter of Brooklyn for her big heart, winning smile, extraordinary wisdom and wicked sense of humor. I will miss her terribly but she will live in my heart forever.

My memory of Rose is being around her was fun. She would say one sentence and I would be laughing. Her personality was magnetic and the stories she told about some of her life experiences were so edgy and glamorous. She was a true Rose a beautiful lady. Love Carol Lily’s daughter.

Rose you will always have a special place in my heart. All the lessons of life, the times we spent together are all so very precious memories. It's been so many years but it seems like yesterday. Even now your influence on my life is still with me. I'm so very sorry I didn't get to see you more. You can rest now my dear friend. I'll have another angel to watch over me.
All my love, Joannie
Adrienne I am so very sorry. I wish there's something I can say to ease your sorrow. Only time will help my friend! You did everything that was possible to care for your mom she was so proud of you. Love, Joannie

My Aunt Rose

Spiritual existence is mysterious. With God's blessing, aunt Rose is with her mother , my mother, aunt Jill, Joseph, and so many more of our family.
A happy reunion.
Years ago, she would tell me how when she went to sleep she could feel grandma next to her in bed and how comforting that was.
Let's keep hope.
With most loving memories of my glamorous, wonderful aunt Rose, who at times, made our lives seem a bit like a movie. Weren't we lucky.🌹

Dear Rose,

The first time I spoke with you, Adrienne,Susan, Ginger and myself were at the beach. Adrienne had made her 1st “check-in” with Mom call and A asked me if I would like to say hi. Of course I did and took the phone and said hi Mrs. Caputo, this is Pat and she graciously told me to please call me Rose and we had a nice chat.

Another memorable time was when the 4 of us went to Brooklyn to visit. We sat in the living room and I was telling her how very beautiful she looked in all the pictures I saw of her in her heyday.

Your last years were difficult, dear Rose, but certainly made easier by the love and devotion of your wonderful daughter Adrienne and Susan.

May the good Lord hold you in the palm of His hands.

Love

Pat and Ginger

Dear Rose,

I have the fondest and funniest memories
of my frequent visits to your home.
Anyone Adrienne invited was welcome.
We HAD to eat—you made delicious food especially your rice balls!
Your amazing insight and sage words of wisdom helped us navigate our teenage challenges.
I am so very thankful that I was able to visit you last year, see your beautiful smile and kiss you on your peaches and cream cheek💋
You were loved and cared for by the best.

Rest In Peace “Mother” Rose 🙏

Love “little” Asta
