Rose was such a wonderful person! She was a dear friend of my mother and when my husband and I first moved to our present home here in Forestville she gave me a spider plant which I have to this day! I have divided it many times and given some to others. Rose and John Falcone were part of my parent’s old gang who played pinochle and went on many vacations together including a cruise. We will always remember Rose as very sweet and kind. It was a blessing to have her in our lives.
I have many fond memories of your parents, also. I love that you still have the spider plant given to you by my Mom. I know that would have made her very happy. Thank you so much for your kind words, and the memories you shared.
