* “Today, and for years to come, we will all have one thing in common… a broken heart because we’ve lost our Rose. I do know, however, the work Rose accomplished for the Lyme Community will live on forever. Her dedication to our cause has saved many lives and made many lives much better.” -Lucy Barnes
