“I never forgot my wonderful patrons who visited Rose Glen Florist and Cafe Express, from the very young on up. Through time I think of them often and their faces are etched on my mind. I was very blessed to have known you all. I thank you now, each and every one. And last but certainly not least, a huge thank you to my faithful and hard-working staff without whom none of this would have been possible”
