I was the store manager at Pet Supplies Plus where Rosemary shopped for her beloved cats. I looked forward to her visiting the store and it was always the highlight of my day. I enjoyed many conversations with her about what she’d saw on the news or a TV show she enjoyed along with stories of her travels and life with her parents and siblings. She was a wonderful, sweet and kind woman who was always filled with so much spunk. I will miss you Rosemary.
