Marianne and the Cagnetti Family:
So very sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother, Rose 🌹 what a fabulous person and 100 yrs.,wow! She had such a wonderful sense of humor, I will never forget when you brought her to my Mother's funeral she went right up to her and held her hand and said, "I beat you Dolly, I'm 90!" Mom passed in July and would have been 90 in November.
I know she is with Nick and they are all playing cards and having a picnic❤ up in Heaven. We couldn't have asked for a better childhood than the one our parents gave us. Just know she will always be with you.
I am so sorry Dave and I won't be able to be with you to say goodbye, he had to go out of town for another funeral and I have been dealing with some health issues and the doc said no groups or gatherings. We both love your family and will be praying for peace and The Lord's blessings . Love, Mary

Sorry to hear the lost of your mother. She a special lady who was like my second mom. Rose and Nick were great help to my family when Linda and I were first married 51 years ago. Saw her occasionally at St. Francis on Saturdays when my grandson had basketball game close by. Lately she remember me but just couldn’t remember my name. I will always remember her big hugs. Sorry can’t be there for funeral but helping my daughter in Phx, AZ who just got divorced. My prayers are with the family.

Rose taught me to give my resources more freely. I often witnessed her givining a car mechanic a tip or other workers. They always looked surprised receiving the money. Sometimes she would ask me for $5 or a few $1s if she didn't have enough with her and she would pay me back.
I enjoyed taking her to Bill's Donuts. We would go there after the Saturday 5:00 Mass and dinner. She loved sitting eating her donut and drink her coffee and people watch!
I'm reminded of her often when I share my resources and see the surprised faces. I always say in my mind... Thank you Rose. I love you.
