We are so so sorry to hear of miss Rose Mary’s passing . We had just seen her at Whole Foods last week . She was a wonderful neighbor ! One cold Saturday morning the children and I accidentally locked ourselves out of our house in our pajamas . Miss Rosemary took us in even entertaining my children with cookies while we waited for my mom to arrive with the keys . She will be greatly missed
