To all of the family members, I am so sorry to hear of this loss of your mother, your sister, your grandmother. Aunt Rose was a wonderful person. I have great childhood memories of visiting her house with my parents. Picking raspberries was always a big event in the summers. I have my own raspberry patch now, and I make some really great raspberry squares too! She will be missed, but my memories of her will never be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
