To Ed and family: We send our Deepest Sympathy to you all. Rose was a very special person. We got to know her well when we gave her the breathing treatments at OVMC. No matter how bad she felt, she was always nice and pleasant, always asking about our family and offering us candy. She will be truly missed. God Bless
