I recently heard of Aunt Rose Mary's passing. My sincere condolences to the entire family. My siblings and I didn't get to know Aunt Rose Mary as well as we would have liked. I am so glad she and Aunt Betty made a visit to Charleston and stayed with my mother, Eva Beard Brown, a couple of years before she passed. It gave us all an opportunity to see the three of them reminisce and reconnect as sisters.
