To all of Rosemary’s family: I am sorry for your loss of your mother and grandmother.

My mother resided at Alamo until her recent passing and Rosemary was her neighbor. We would talk on occasion when the opportunity presented itself and although I’m not sure if she ever remembered me, she would talk as though she did. She truly was a remarkable lady and I am glad to have known both Rosemary and Clare.

I am saddened at the loss of Rosemary. She and Clare made me feel so welcome in Otsego. Before Clare passed, we would have long talks in Meijer when we ran into each other. It was a pleasure to have known you boys in high school.
