To the family and friends of Rosemary Hill, I have the deepest sympathy for your loss. Rosemary was always a wonderful woman to me. I have memories of Max, Rosemary, and Randy coming over for dinner occasionally many years ago. One, particular, Rosemary cutting my meat for lunch since I was very young. She will be missed.
