My dear sweet, long-time friend Pam:
I am so very, very sorry about the loss of your beloved Mother. I will always remember the Rose who had so much spunk and energy. I loved it when she would visit ‘us’ in FL. I will never forget the way she loved to cook and bake. I still have her hand-written ‘Wands’ recipe. Rose brought so many happy moments to our lives.
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born, and
a time to die;
a time to heal;
a time to break down, and
a time to build up;
A time to weep, and
a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and
a time to dance.
My heart goes out to you and your family during this difficult time. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do for you.
All my love,
Chris (Maielli) & Gary MacDonald
Pam and family - we were so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Please know that you are in our prayers during this time.
Uncle Ben, Gary, Pam and John,
I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I could be there. I have such fond memories of Aunt Rose from my childhood. She was such a free spirit. She will be missed.
Ed Delliquadri and family
