I am so sorry for your loss!  I have wonderful memories of coming to your mom's house when you guys lived in Ulysses, and then with Gerty and your Aunt Pat!  Your mom's house always seemed like such a busy happy place, and she always made me feel like one of the 'bunch'!  Remember..."those we love are never gone...they live within our hearts!"  R.I.P. Rose    you are a blessing to us all!
