I had the priviledge of your mother's friendship during college and as our professional careers began. Our time in Philadelphia was worthy of Hemingway and Faulkner for its zany, madcap episodes. Illness keeps me from attending the viewing or funeral, but know that she and you are in my prayers

Dear Margo and family,

Please accept my sincere sympathy on the loss of your mother, Rose Marie. I had the privilege of taking care of her at FMC Dialysis a few years ago and also helped her with her recent move to Mulberry Towers. She was a wonderful person and a very supportive of others. I will not be able to make the viewing due to working the 3-11 shift, but please know that my prayers will be with you.
