When I think of Aunt Rose I remember her in a home video wearing a green short go-go dress. What a great memory. I have a giant smile on my face.

I remember Aunt Rose being sooooo easy going and the apartment in Manhattan. I glad I had a chance to see her even though it was at least 10 yrs ago. We will miss her very much so and glad we had the chance to have her in our lives. Love you Aunt Rose!

I have known Rose for as long as her granddaughter and my daughter were in grammar school. I loved Rose's spunk and attitude. She was always ready to take the girls to the park, the zoo, and anywhere they wanted to go. I loved running into her in the neighborhood - and always enjoyed hearing her latest crazy story about work or her experiences. I truly will miss seeing her and am so very sorry for the loss to her family. She was such a lovely, funny and goodhearted lady.
