  1. I had the pleasure of befriending Rosemary at Aurora Nursing Home (formerly Honey Hill) while we were both patients there. We quickly bonded, having our Italian heritage as a common ground. I will always remember laughing with Rosemary at the dinner table. We would call ourselves The Three Amigos: Rosemary, “Pop” and myself. My daughter, Maureen, and her two sons, Andre & Ilya would always go out of their way to talk with Rosemary.
    Our deepest condolences go out to Rosemarie’s family. May she rest in peace. May she be reunited with her loved ones, and know that those who remain on earth with rejoice in reuniting with her when it’s their time.

    Mary Milano, and Maureen & Bruce DeNunzio, along their sons: Andre & Ilya
