    Andrea and Family. Please accept my condolences. What a wonderful and beautiful lady. I smiled as I read the line on following the Tigers. In the ’70’s I stayed over a few times and was freely given all the love, kindness and generosity anyone could ever imagine. Until the Tigers were mentioned. It was clearly understood that no way would I ever be allowed to borrow a Tigers ticket, and if i ever pretended to forgot .. I was reminded.

    Andrea John and family:
    Please know that my thoughts are with you at his difficult time. Rose always had a smile and wave and a “how are you doing” for me anytime I stopped by Mom and Dad’s. Her devotion to her garden and her beloved dogs was alwasy something I admired and she had one of the most infectious laughs I’ve ever heard…when she would throw her head back and slap her knee and just enjoy something silly I had said always made my day. She was my “neighbour” my whole life and these days that is rare. Remember she is always with you in the breeze in the sunshine and when she just crosses your mind in a warm and wonderful memory.
