I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I remember meeting her when she came to school to pick up one of the girls or to help you. Know that your family is in my prayers.

My warmest thoughts and heartfelt prayers are with the family of Rose. I worked with Rose in Cardiac Rehab at Riverside Hospital. As a fellow nurse, Rose was a wonderful role model and truly a lovely, caring person. I’m sure she is now enjoying her heavenly reward.

I have so many fond memories of Rose. We lived on Kildale Sq. North and our children played together. Rose and I were in a book club at one time. We saw each other from time to time over the years, but certainly not enough. Rose will always be in my heart as someone special I knew.
My prayers go out to Ted, Vonda and Alissa. She will be missed by many and kept in our hearts forever.

Ted, Vonda & Alissa, I am so sorry to learn of the passing of your mother; Rose. I remember her well from my childhood playing at your house. In fact, it was she who provided me with my first paying job (mowing your lawn). I’ll keep you in my prayers during this very difficult time.

Just wanted to say Im very sorry about the loss of your mother. She was a very special, very kind woman who opened her home and her heart to many. You guys are like family to me and my heart and prayers are with you.

Ted, Vonda and Alissa,
I was saddened to hear of the sudden passing of your mom. Losing a parent certainly puts things into perspective and reminds us that none of us are invincible and that our time here on earth could come to an end at any given moment. Your mom was a very special lady and will be missed by many. She was always so welcoming and kind to not only myself, but to all of your friends when we came over, and let’s face it, your house was quite popular back in the day 🙂
Hold on to all of the wonderful memories you have of her and take comfort in knowing that where she is, there is no suffering….just love.
Thinking of and praying for each of you,

I am so sad to hear about the loss of your mother. I considered her a friend. She was such a dedicated nurse, a calm presence to her patients and colleagues. She had so many talents to share, I wish she had had more time with you all. Ted, Vonda, Allysa-she loved you and her grandchildren sooooooo much.
Dr. Teri Caulin-Glaser at the MHHC wrote a tribute to her which I would love to share with you. Send me your email address sometime and I will forward it.

My heart goes out to all of you. I am so sorry to hear about your mom. She was such a special person who spent her life taking care of others. Julie and I spent some time last night talking about all the time we spent over at your house during the summers. Your mom was in all of those great memories. She always welcomed all of us. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Love, Jill Casterline-Fraraccio
