Diana, I was sorry to hear of your mother's passing. After I lost my mother in 1982 and my father in 2007 I often wished that I could share news with each that I knew would make them happy. My mother missed the births of two of her grandchildren and my father missed the college graduations of the last of his grandchildren. In retrospect these were the same two grandchildren. Claire and I won't be able to attend the services but our thoughts will be with you.

I worked with Rosalie for many years at the bank in OOB. Even after I stopped working there, I would see her around the Saco/Biddeford area. She was an amazing woman. Always quick with a joke or a humorous story, I will "Rosebud." My thoughts and prayers are with her family. She was so proud of you all (especially her grandkids). Rest in peace, my friend.
