I am so saddened to hear of the passing of Rose.  Many years ago, as neighbors living in CVSD, our families both shared the joy of having two sons.  I will never forget the Kochenberger Bassett Hound named “Skeeter”, who provided howls for every fire siren in the area.  I still have several award-winning recipes that Rose was so kind to share with me, as well as memories of some delicious food! 
My heartfelt condolences go out to her immediate and extended family in the loss of such a lovely person.
