Vicki’s mom, Rose Legman, passed peacefully in her sleep Dec. 16. Five years ago Alzheimer’s snuck into Rose’s life and, although her amazing intellect was diminished, she remained a loving, spunky, wonderful woman. Vicki and I visited the day before. She was weak but she still knew Vicki and me, and chimed into our conversation. Her last meal was Vicki’s homemade chicken soup, which she loved, and the last words she heard were from her caregiver, Emma, who said, “Good night Rose, I love you.” She had no pain or discomfort. We should all be so lucky. And we who knew Rose were lucky to have her in our lives. Vicki and her sister Linda are planning a memorial for January. Thanks to all of you who have sent such sweet condolences.
Rose liked movies, but she could NOT abide cartoons. Vicki and I saw "Tangled" and both thought of Rose.
