Rose Sereno (Mrs. Sereno to me) was one of the kindest and most genuine people I have ever met. I had Not seen her since around 1986, but  could never forget her.  She was loved by ALL the young people in her church also.  They flocked to her after service to say hello and chat awhile.  
I was fortunate enough to haved stayed in her house on different visits and she and her husband were so very hospitable.  She was a fantastic cook also. I know that she passed some of her talents on to her daughters also.

Dear Cathy,
   I was sorry to read about Rose's death.  I enjoyed working with you and your Mom for many years as you provided lunches for our Northern Tier Head Start children.  My condolences to you and your family.

My dear Rosie, while working at Human Services we became great friends.  She invited me to go to the Mother Daughter banquet with her and I went.  We laughed, prayed and talked every day.  She was a wonderful Christian woman now at peace with her Lord.  I love you Rosie.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal;
Love leaves a memory no one can steal
