I am so sorry to hear this. Rose and I were roommates in nursing school and I can remember the many trips we made on foot down to 27th or was it 29th street. Prayers for the family.

So sorry to hear Rosemarie passed. My father was Walter Alfred Schaffer, brother to Alma. So sad our family never knew one another. I met Joe Erbacher and Sue when I shopped at the lower market many years ago.

Mrs. Henry was an exceptional individual. She loved her husband, her family, her faith and her nursing career with everything she was. I learned a lot about life and what it meant to take care of people in the time that i worked with her and it was an education that became invaluable. I know that she is now happily back with Herk, the love of her life. My sincerest condolences to the family.
