    Donna, Joey and family,

    Praying that you are receiving some comfort and peace by Our Lord, during this time of grief. Auntie Rose is much loved and I had the pleasure of speaking with her on the phone several times during the pandemic. I always enjoyed being connected with her on Facebook and seeing your beautiful and loving family.
    She will be dearly missed but her love shines on through you all.

    Donna, Joey & family…..we are so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was the best neighbor & “back fence” friend. She was always so happy to see us, I have many warm memories of hanging in her kitchen, delicious food cooking and her laugher & joy. We later loved seeing her in photos in the Revere Journal enjoying her senior years. We are so sorry for all of you…way too soon . Sending our prayers, hugs, & love.
