In this life I was blessed!  I was here long enough to raise my 4 babies Pierre M. Pooler (Kassandra), Hank L. Pooler (Staci), Angela M. Pooler (Alexander)&Kevin J. Pooler. Unfortunately I will watch my grand babies grow from Heaven, but Thankful I was able to watch them come into this world. Although missing out on growing up together I met my sister & Brother Bonnie Sousie (Ero) & Frank Sousie. I will never be dead as long as my family and friends are alive. If a song just will not leave your thoughts, that will be me reminding you to sing be happy & enjoy life. If you stub your big toe and cuss like a sailor, you will know that those words have flown from my mouth into yours. If you wake in the middle of the night with worries keeping you from sleep, remember, It will only change when you have had enough! Those stressful days when you feel like you can’t breathe that’s me hugging you a little too tight letting you know you’re not alone  I’m with you!


Rose enjoyed going on vacation to beaches as well as to visit lighthouses.
