Helena and Alicia,
My aunt Madeline lived next door to your parents on Canterbury for many years. They were both wonderful to her. Mario would work on her car. Rose visited her after she went to assisted living. I am so grateful for the kindness they gave her for many years. I'm sorry to hear about Rose.

Dear Helena and Alicia, We were your next door neighbors at Mayview Apartments from 1958 to 1961 while I was a student at NC State, and your parents were our most favored neighbors. You two girls were very small, perhaps around two and four when we lived there. We moved to southeastern North Carolina after NC State but stayed in communication with Rose and Mario for some time and often wanted them to visit us and go to the beach but it never worked out. I fondly remember the badminton games we played with your dad, and the lovely backyard visits we enjoyed with them. They were were great people and both will be sorely missed. We moved back to Raleigh in 1968 and now live in the North Raleigh area just off Six Forks. Perhaps you could contact us and visit some time.

Fondly, Jim and Doris Wilder.

I worked with Rose at Ronsons in the early Nineties. I enjoyed knowing her. She was a character. I lost contact with her after the store closed, but often thought about her and wondered how she and Mario were doing. I hope both of her girls have done well. I heard many stories about them.
You all are in my thoughts.
