  1. My deepest sympathy goes out to Rosemary Beauchamp family. It was a shock to here about what happened. Rosemary i have known for years and she always loved to walk all the time. She would even be out early in the morning walking. When i would see Rosemary she would always ask how my mom and myself were doing. She was a very caring person and will be missed but never be forgotten.

  2. I was Rosemary’s neighbor for ten yrs and we are all very sad to hear about this awful accident.The children always loved to chat with her and she loved to visit with them when we were out.She was always so sweet and remembered them for every holiday, and the kids were always ready for a hug from her.She even loved our cat, Lady.We lovedRosemary, and will miss her dearly, she was a great lady.At least she is with Al again.
