Dear Kim, John and family,
Words cannot express how sorry I am to hear of Rose’s passing. My deepest condolences for your loss. I loved visiting with Rose when she worked in the college store . She was a great lady but you already know that. I remember when she was smitten with John and I told him so. Then I would tell Rose something John would say about her until finally John got up the nerve to ask her out. I had fun playing Cupid 😍. My friendship with Rose would always pick up where we left off next time we seen each other. I wish I would have visited with her one more time! Heaven gained an angle when the Lord took her. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Love, Charlene Bailey

Shared a laugh or two with Rose when we worked together for PACES at the college. Rest easy Rose.

Dear Kim and family,

I'm sure you do not remember me, but me and my children, Tim Giuliani, Jeff Giuliani and Tony Giuliani are grieving the loss of your mom tonight. We just found out about her death today and wanted to extend our condolences. She was an integral part of our lives when my children were young and I was married to Pat. She will always be a sweet memory to us and we are saddened by her loss.

I first met Rose when I was a student at SUNY Potsdam and she was the most friendly cashier at the College Bookstore, lending to my excitement of being a new, non-traditional older student on campus. Then after finding full-time employment at the college, I realized what a small world it is, I learned that her daughter, Kim Bradshaw worked at the PACES administrative office and that our best friend, Donna Bonfiglio from Oneida, NY was Rose's cousin! Lastly, Rose was our friend on Facebook and always made warm and loving comments about our life at our camp, our love of animals, and just overall joy. Kim, may you be comforted by the many memories you and your mom shared over the years. May you rest in peace, Rose.
