  5. Rosemary was my Godmother. Growing up, I always remember the little things she\’d do for me. On every special occasion, whether it be my birthday, or Christmas, my mom would come home from work, and say “I\’ve got something for you from Rosemary!” always something great! When we\’d visit her house, there was always something good to eat, and lots of love. She was a great person, a successful woman, and will always be very special to me. She will be missed. Sean
