Pat, Jon and Family, My sincere condolences to the family of Rose. She was a great neighbor and sometimes a second mother to my son. When I couldn't find him, check at Rose and Don's house. A sweet lady...

My thoughts and prayers for Rose’s family. Rose and I used to have breakfast together every Friday at Denny’s before going to work. We had such nice talks. They are good times remembered.

Rose was a delightfully kind and equally charming Hagerstown 1955 classmate personality who married her soul-mate partner in life, Mr. Donald "Donnie" Lee Sprankle, "Mr." excitement personified! The two were a unique "duo" in social settings: laughing, telling tales, and dancing while wrapping the essence of their happiness in the joy of life with their sparkling laughter. They were a team, a dazzling pleasure to witness, and it gives me joy to know that they are together again in eternity. May the family take comfort knowing that they continue to strike a smile at the mention of their names with having known - up close and personal - lives well lived and respected. May we share time again at a table in time, Alice and I. Peace be with you both, cheers!
