Robert and Rosemary loved each other for 58 years; before he passed. She held fast to her family and Steelers for a decade or so longer. Until this past Easter Monday, April 9, 2012.
She was 91 years old and buried with Military Honors. She specifically requested that her granddaughters serve as her PallBearers, unless they were unable to do so; then the grandsons could help.
I truly wish I had known her longer, and been able to spend more time hearing her stories. But I am grateful for the moments we did have together; and honored that I was present with her family to celebrate her life.
