  1. Our condolences, Howard and family. Mr. Rose was a good man. I remember that you had a cardboard cutout of him at your store in the mall, and it was a treat to see a son so proud of his Dad.

  2. I’m thinking of you all and know that you will be missing your Dad for a long time. Your Dad was so good to me my whole life. I’m glad that I had the opportunity to see him in September. We were at Mimi’s for lunch. Howard wasn’t saying much until dessert was served, then he perked up and make us all laugh. He had that wonderful ability to make people laugh. May he rest in peace.

    Again, my thoughts are there with you. Hugs and lots of Love.

  3. I will always miss you Dad (and Mom!) It gives me comfort that you two are together again! My heart will always hold a special place for you both. I was blessed with great parents. RIP Dad. Glad you are no longer in pain!! Love you so much!! ?????
