I knew Rose during the years that I lived in the carriage house at the ECAC as caretaker. I have many memories of Rose's kindness and humor.

Jim, Jimmy, Mike and girls, I feel so blessed to have known Rosie. She was such a kind-hearted, loving, generous and funny woman. She would have done anything for anyone and given her last dime to help someone in need. She was a woman to be admired and was a big inspiration to me. I have many treasured memories of Rosie and your family. Although there are no words that can ease your grief or take away your pain, I hope it helps to know that someone so special will never be forgotten. Rosie's memory will forever be in my heart. Love and Prayers Always, Wendee

Jim and boys, yes there were the hockey days and we do remember a wonderfully supportive wife and mother. Then in the past years there was the girls breakfast coffee,group. Rosie was such a vibrant part of the group. We enjoyed lots of fun conversations with her all about you boys and yes those wonderful precious grandchildren too. Our love and prayers are with you all in this great time of sorrow.
