Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sad to hear of Rose's passing. I was at the Memorial Day parade on Monday, and I never attended a parade without thinking of how I used to see Rose and George there. I worked for the Town of Westwood from 1987 to 1993 and always enjoyed talking to Rose. Please accept my sincere condolences to the whole family, and know that I will be praying for you all during this difficult time of adjustment.

I have so many memories of your Mother from YEARS of town hall visits. Your Mom and mine worked there forever, my late Mother served 51 years. Your Mother was always so kind and loving to me and our boys when they got dragged into town hall! We bonded about fingernails over the years. She was always so lovely and gracious to me and I visited her so many times at town hall because she had a gift for making everyone feel special!
May you all fine peace and comfort in the memory of a lovely woman. May smiles form instead of tears for you all! She was such a great lady! God bless you all and plz know how much she was loved by so many
