  • Peg (Bockman) Egan We are so sorry for your loss. Rosie was a beautiful soul. She and Jerry were the best of friends to mom and dad. She was so kind to us and my son Parrish. When we say her name we all smile, as she did, with lots of fond memories on Deerpath Rd. Mom will miss talking to her best friend.
  • Pat Follin Rosa Very sorry for your loss. Rose was a beautiful sole and a wonderful friend to my parents. She was special to me as she tried to teach me knitting and gardening as a young girl. I will never forget her kindness and think of her often as I drive down Lakelawn and Deerpath.
