After Rose's funeral we had dinner with our good friends Don and Carolyn and their 3 daughters Heidi, Heather and Holly and Heidi's husband Patrick. We were all very close to Rose and this gave us time to reminisce of the good times we had, her qualities and what she meant to each of us.
Also to toast her with a glass of wine. Rose particularly like Rose'.
She touched each of our lives in a special way. Our kids and grandkids referred to her as "grandma" Rose. Rose loved children. She gave us a deeper appreciation of and nurturing of flowers. She loved to cook and at dinner gatherings always brought her famous deviled eggs, lemon squares or homemade pie.
It was Don and Carolyn who introduced us to Rose when we moved to Salem 22 years ago. We will always be grateful for this.
