Jimmy, I heard about your mom's passing from a mutual friend early this morning, and though I am unable to attend her wake this evening, I wanted to reach out to you and Sue and express my condolences. I'll always remember your mom, and the smiles and the laughter we shared back in our high school and college days; she was one of a kind. Debbie and I extend our condolences to you, Sue, the Dellano's and your entire family. Stay strong my friend; miss you and think of you often.

Paul and phyllis marks

We always looked forward to seeing Rose on our family trips to Maplewood. Our last memory of Rose's generosity as we were stranded in Hurricane Sandy was her homemade chicken and noodle soup eaten by candlelight. Blessing for all the family as you retell those wonderful memories.
