Although we only met Rosemary once and that was after Alzheimer’s disease had changed her reality, I feel we have gotten the opportunity to “know” her through our daughter-in-law, Laura. The person Laura is could only come from a long line of loving, caring family. I know her grandmother was a cornerstone of the family and will be greatly missed. The Provenzano family is in our thoughts and prayers. God bless you all, Rick and Karen Caruso

dj, we haven’t met yet; I’m a new HTD on Angels4us. I did want to let you know how very sorry I am to hear that you’ve lost your Mom. All of your friends on Angels are praying for you and your family that you will find peace and feel comfort in knowing that many people care.

I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. I wanted to be there with you today so badly, but I am truely there in heart. I have so many memories of your mother, and of your father, and every one of them are good memories. You all were so blessed to have such good parents….ones who loved you all and stood by you all, unconditionally. As I watched the video I realized just how much you girls look like your mom……and as I see all of you in the video with her, the love that you have for her, and her for you, clearly shows. I have always thought of you all as ‘family’, and even though time and life get in the way, you are always in my heart and in my prayers! I know that your hearts are breaking right now, but your mom, and your dad, will ALWAYs live thru all of you. As life goes on, you will see that you will find more and more of your parents in you…in your words, in your actions, and in your thoughts. It never gets easier, but it does get different. I love you guys!!!!!

I cannot tell you how sorry I am for the loss of your mom. Rosemary holds such a special place in my heart. When I was growing up, I so loved spending time with her… playing cards or just talking. Another of the great 5th Street moms, gone too soon. Hold onto your special memories and they will see you through the hard times.

Love, Melissa

On this day I wish for you the Peace that comes

from knowing your Mother is in God’s House,

and is suffering no more.

On this day she’s living life on

a grand scale without a doubt….

Fully able to recall every precious memory

of her life in God’s glorious Technicolor’s….

Take Comfort, believing she’s reunited

with all those loved ones that made the journey

before her to prepare the path and welcome her home….

My prayers for you and your family ask that

on this day, and those that follow, you allow

yourself to feel all the love and embraces they are

emanating down to each of you from above….

Let the Light of her Spiritual presence fill the

darkness her passing has left in your hearts….
