I am so very sorry to hear of Rosemary's passing. She was my Mom, Sandy's roommate at Heritage last year at this time. She was always so good to my Mom. I always enjoyed visiting with her - we had many great conversations. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy at this very difficult time.

I worked with Rosemary at Macy's and I always enjoyed working with her. She also supported my daughter's MS Walk Team for many years.
RIP Rosemary.
