Please accept my sincere condolences to Mrs. Rose Wolfe's family. I so enjoy Father Joseph Wolfe's homilies. He always speaks about various experiences he has had. Most especially when he talks about his visits to the town where his family lives. On one occasion he told the congregation about saying Mass at his sister's home and about the new baby's arrival. I have always enjoyed his homilies, he speaks from the heart. I really enjoy all the homilies at masses on EWTN. Each priest is different but always refers to Our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.

Rosie was such a sweet lady. I worked with her at Al's I-90 Cafe for a bit. My mother was friends with her, also. Rosie was always so kind. Prayers for her family.
