I have so many fond memories of Rosemary. We went on many trips together and the most memorable ones were when we went to an Elvis impersonator show in Gatlinburg and Rosemary caught one of the scarves and when we went to Memphis and visited Graceland. Rosemary sure loved her Elvis!! Even though it has been many years since Rosemary lived and worked in Ohio, us fellow co-workers still talk about her often and fondly. She was one of a kind and I loved her like a sister!! My sincere condolences to her family.
