  6. Rick, I’m so sorry to hear of your moms passing. I would have text but I lost all my contacts when I got a new phone. Take care, Jamie

  7. Rosie was the sweetest. We served many lunches together after funerals at St. Benedict’s. She would always worry that we wouldn’t have enough food. One funeral was snowing, stormy and blustery, we were unsure if they would have the service. Service was on and Rosie called. As she called Father was blowing out her driveway because he wanted to make sure she would make it. We chuckled and headed to the church. It always seemed to come together. I will never forget her beautiful smile and laughter! Rest in peace sweet Rosie.

  8. My condolences to the family! I met Rosie when she and I worked at JCP! She was such a sweet and kind person. Always enjoyed our visits at break time. R.I.P. Rosie, And Blessings to the family!
