Mrs Marianne Varlaro-Howell left a message on April 30, 2021:
Labor Day 1998 I suffered a brain aneurism Dr. Rose was on emergency at the H.I.P. center and while talking with her on the phone the bad headache stopped (blood going down the back of my spine). She directed my husband to Stony Brook Hosp. I suffered two burst aneurysm's and survived without any problems. My husband had a stroke. I was there for him, because of Dr. Rose & my neuro surgeon was there for me. Our deepest sympathy to you Dr. Joseph and family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My deepest sympathies on the passing of dear Rose. She was a lady ahead of her time. Strong, smart, beautiful and sassy. Her heart and faith were way larger than her petite size. Her sense of humor was absolutely the best. She had so much love and respect for her family and was always so proud of each and every one of them. Working with Rose and Dr. Joe for so many years was like being with family. Dr. Rose was like a mom, a friend and a role model to me. My heart breaks for all of her family, especially dear Dr. Joe. May she Rest In Peace💜
