I am so sad for all the Sullivans at Rosemary's passing. She always made me feel so welcome and a part of the clan. On the Vineyard, when I submitted my plum tart to the Ag Fair and of course, failed to score a ribbon, Rosemary coined it my Losing Plum Tart and ate it with gusto. In my mind's eye, I see her laughing and having a helluva good time. I will always remember her.
Sending much love.
