I just heard about Rosemary! My deepest sympathy to all her wonderful family whom she loved so much. I enjoyed my years working with Rosemary her intelligence sense of humor and work ethic was amazing. (An how I loved her devil eggs)! I know she is having a drink and a few laughs in Paradise. She certainly deserves to be in love and joy
