We have just returned from the south and saw that Rose had passed oway over the winter. So saddened to hear this news. I will always remember Rose for her kind heart and her exceptional sense of humor!!! I felt blessed to have Rose in my life and I think anyone who crossed paths with Rose were better for it!!! Sleep well Rose...until we meet again.

Saddened to read that Rose had passed away. I had some great visits and a lot of laughs with her as a patient at LACGH. She had such a fun loving infectious personality. May you find strength in all your wonderful memories.

Aunt Rose was the "cool" Aunt that always had a "basket of little dogs" and entered the room with a smile and full of energy. She was not one to slow down and that appears to stayed with her. She will be sadly missed and her life celebrated.

Rose will always be in my thoughts, everytime I drive down Chapel rd, go by the old train station in downtown Ottawa, and see the Little Rideau. All places I associate with her. I spent some time at their house on Chapel when I was in Ottawa. Watering what she called a lawn that was 4' by 4' in the evening. Gone but never forgotten.
