I miss you Mom and think of you everyday. I miss our long Mother-daughter talks and our Tuesday lunch and shopping outings. So often I catch myself saying...oh I should call Mom or wait till I tell Mom about this. Its like she is still here...

I have some really fond memories of my sister "Ro." We did some fun things growing up. She took me to the zoo, bowling, on a camping trip, and many other outings.

She had an artistic flair and would draw cut-out dolls with beautiful wardrobes that she designed for me when I was a child. She also created beautiful hand-carved pieces that she gave to others as gifts.

Ro had a great laugh.

She lived a good life and had a loving family. I will miss her dearly.

Love, Marge

Aunt Rosemary was a very pretty woman. She had many artistic talents: etching detailed designs on stone (?) boxes, decorating the house with unique touches (cutting flowers from the extra wallpaper border in the bathroom and gluing them on the toilet seat), and matching her outfits in a very stylish manner.
She was a perfectionist and the house was always immaculate. Even in their small apartment where I baby sat Paula and Sandy, everything was "just so." She enjoyed beautiful clothes and never wore slacks to my knowledge.
Aunt "Ro" loved her children and grandchildren and was very proud of their talents and accomplishments. She liked people, playing cards and talking. She & I had many conversations on the phone discussing many topics. I will miss her unique kind-of-squeaky voice and those phone talks. May she rest in peace.
Love, neice Carm

I, too, have wonderful memories of my Aunt Rosemary and will miss our enjoyable occasional phone conversations. She was a wonderful person and will be missed dearly by myself and my husband.

Rosemarie was a great person to celebrate an event with. She made us all smile. She loved jewelry and nice clothes and flowers. She loved to play poker. Her family was her pride and joy. We shall always have fond memories of her. We will never forget her. Love, Rita Foresi

The love between a mother and daughter is so special and I will treasure it for the rest of my life. I will miss our long talks and our special lunchs and shopping trips together. I am so thankful that I had my mom for 89 years and now it is time to let her go. She was a beautiful lady. Paula
