I am so sorry to learn of Rose Ann's passing! We grew up as neighbors and Rose baby sat for me when I was a child. I was happy to get to see her in the past year when I was visiting my Mom and she stopped in for a visit! We never know when will be the last time that we get to see someone. May God bless her in her new life and all of her family as they grieve her loss, especially her daughter, Tara. I'm holding you all in my thoughts and prayers from afar.
