    I am very sorry to hear of Mr. Rosen’s passing. I liked him very much and enjoyed my time with him in our caring for Muki at the veterinary hospital. It was a pleasure to see him enjoying his little buddy. He had a great sense of humour and was very kind. I will miss him. Sandra and family, I wish you peace and comfort.
