Dennis and Sheila
I have known Rose for all the time she was at Baldwinville Nursing Home.
On a personal note, I thank her for her kindness to my Mother when she was there. Rose went out of her her way to welcome her and make her feel at Home. I will never forget her. She was always faithful at Mass and I was happy to be there for her at the end. God Bless Her!
