If I'm wearing a zippered jacket, and Rosemarie's hand is raised to her face. then yes--I'm that Billy. You must have been a good (e)friend if she chose to share these photos with you. Interesting how the electronic age creates connections.

Hi Bill, yup, that's the one, she sent me those several years ago, it's quite amazing to finally put some words to the other person in the photo, she spoke very warmly of you when she sent that photo, you were 'the bomb' apparently

The electronic age and in particular social media has indeed made the world a much smaller place, cliché I know, folk connect up in ways we'd never imagined as kids.

That photo you posted on your first post, that's a much clearer copy of the one she sent me, the one I have has had it's crinkles and scratches photoshopped out, think I prefer the authentic look of yours, it's a great snapshot of time, just wonderful.

I see snippets of conversations and interactions between myself and Ro on an almost daily basis thanks to the magic of Facebook memories, she was a prolific commentator on just about any aspect of my life, though my cat got most of the love and attention for some reason , seeing stuff on there makes me simultaneously sad and glad at the same time, I think if we can leave those kind of thoughts behind with folk after we go, then that's not a bad thing.

You are the guy in the photo with your hair hanging down before your left eye.

It was also send to me years ago.
during those years i was unemployed and every day around 11.30 hour CET ( 05.30 NY time) she started to chat or email me.
first question of the day would always be how my cats were doing.
So i once named a cat Widdy

Yes, I am that guy. And am somewhere between bemused and astonished to learn suddenly that my photo has enjoyed such unexpected circulation. It is gratifying to hear from Mr. Jones that such kind words accompanied its distribution; I'm thankful to him for sharing that information.

Although Rosemarie's life went through many twists and turns over the years, one of the constants was her love for animals, especially cats, and she would often do without in order to ensure that they were properly cared for.

Bill, I posted that link on the obituary website and am very much heartened to learn that it found its way to Ro's real-life friends, leading you here.

Thanks for sharing her with us over the years.
