  1. Debra, Craig and David. I was so sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. I thought the world of her. My deepest condolences to you all.
    -Bill and Sharon McClelland.

  2. My sincere condolences to the family. I met Rose at Primrose as I visited my mother and joined her for breakfast almost daily since my father passed in January 2022. Rose sat at the table next to my mother’s. We all became friends and were on a first name basis. Rose was so elegant and beyond kind. She was very motherly to her friends as she watched out for them. She was so easy to love. I truly enjoyed my time with her son Dave as he visited his mom. I have the deepest respect for Dave. I will miss our time together with Rose and her son Dave and all their friends at Primrose. I cherished our visits. God is so good and we were so blessed to have known Rose, truly The Lord’s servant her on earth.

  3. Dave & Family:
    We’re so sorry to hear about your wonderful mom passing. Our prayers are with you all.

  4. I first met Rose at the dental office I worked at. She was a patient of mine for many years and I enjoyed our visits together. I would then see Rose while visiting my mother at the Primrose. She was a beautiful woman, both inside and out. My sincere condolences to the family.

  5. Debbie, Dave and Craig, our deepest sympathy to you and your family on the loss of your mother.
    She was always so friendly and upbeat when we visited her at Primrose and of course mother’s best friend there.
    We will miss seeing her and having lunch, as mother would mention her every day. Our deepest condolences.

  6. Debbie I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom! I have so many memories of you and your family. All of you are in my prayers and heart!

  7. I grew up with the Busia family. We all lived in the Minnequa Heights on Evans Avenue. Our family lived in 2300 Block of Evans and I have fond memories of the Busia twins Rich and Bobby. Unfortunately Bobby’s life ended too soon and I can recall Mrs. Busia’s heavy heart. The loss of Bobby touched all of us. We are all connected and touch each other sometimes at the most unexpected times and ways. A few weeks ago I saw David and Craig at Bill Eurich’s memorial. Sorry we didn’t have an opportunity to visit & share some memories. Rose Marie was about 6 years older than me so my interaction was mostly with the twins. Please accept my most heart felt condolences in the loss of your Mother, Rose Marie Shaddy. The loss of one’s mother is a great loss as she is our connection to life itself. May she rest in peace.
    With sympathy,
    Lucille Paglione-Corsentino
