Memories: One that especially brings a smile to my face. Rose would always say when fishing for a confusion, "A little birdie told me you___." Enfield had an awful lot of little birdies. A very special memory is after church every Sunday for 10 years + I spent two to three hours with Rose. This was our special time together. I always cared & loved even though the past five years we did not see each other over an unresolved issue. I miss 32 Alden Avenue and will always keep Rose (mom) in my heart.
