My deepest sympathies to Efrozena’s family. Have many fond memories of Rose with the old Co-op clan and family gatherings. Rose would cringe when Desiree and I, both tone death would sing at work, until that one day when we sang Amazing Grace in perfect harmony. She was so pleased with us. She herself loved to sing hymns. Have missed you Rose. Rest in peace.
