    My prayers for peace and comfort are with Rosemary’s family.

    To quote a passage from Enya’s song, “Only Time”:
    ” Who can say
    Where the day goes
    Where the road goes
    Who knows… Only time”

    It reminds me that time is a great healer, and that each day gives us new roads to follow,
    and new ways to love and be loved.
    Rejoyce and celebrate the life Rosemary so richly lived.
    I feel that is what she would want.

    Peace and blessings to her family.
