Notes for Rosemary Catherine Lyman:
Rosemary The most unselfish person that I ever met. Always thinking of others, Never about herself. Always asking me to give to others that were not as fortunate as we and doing it anomously.
Rosemary sent a letter to Bishop Timlin thanking him for sending Father Guglimelli to our parish. Rosemary asked the perpetual adoration people at St. Gabriels church to pray for people who she wanted god to help. Rosemary was very concerned about our daughter, Mae. She always supported Mae in all of her endeavors. Rosemary was my guiding light. She taught me how to live and she taught me how to die with dignity and a smile.

Joe, We are so sorry. Our hearts and prayers are with you and Mae. Rosemary was a wonderful woman, who was much more than a wife; she was a very special friend, a confidant and the strength that lead you through life. She will continue to watch over you. Please take solace in that she will not have to suffer any more physical or emotional pain. The Lord takes care of his children, and Rosemary will be right in front cheering you and Mae to greater achievements.
My friend, there are not always answers for what happens. Embrace the wonderful memories, the life and love of a very remarkable woman. You shared so much, and so many good things came out of that love. You were indeed lucky that Rosemary entered and consumed your life. What better than to have shared your life with her. You are a much better person having had your life with her. Be strong, carry on. She would have wanted you to. Love, Dick and Dee
