Your kindness will never be forgotten. You are a beautiful soul and it was intended for us to meet, as I was a young nurses aide, aspiring RN. HONY saw me through nursing school. I spent 18 years on cardiac units, and now back to hospice in PA. Will ALWAYS remember you.

To Vada's family, I offer my deepest condolences. I am a HONY volunteer and had the pleasure of speaking to her at a volunteer luncheon. I remember her warmth, spark, and intelligence. Though our conversation was brief, she left a beautiful impression, as it seems she did on many!

One of the most extraordinary people I've ever had the privilege of knowing, Vada was caring, intuitive, and brilliant. We are all poorer without her.

I wish I kept in touch with you and Dennis after you left Staten Island. Back in the early 50's we had such wonderful times together. I will always remember summer nights playing outdoors and being so happy with my friends.
May your extended family find comfort, peace and love. You made a significant imprint on this world. Thank you, Vada.

Dear Michael and Family,

Please accept my deepest sympathies at the loss of Vada. She was truly one of the kindest, most loving and caring individuals I've ever met.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

With warmest regards,

I am so sorry and hurt to hear the loss of Vada. My deepest sympathy and condolences to Mr. Michael Rosen and family.
I am a volunteer at Hospice of New York for approximately seven years and I had seen Vada pass through the office from time to time. But, it was in the last two years I had gotten to know Vada. In 2018, Vada surprised me by inviting me to a luncheon at Hospice of New York and I

So sad to hear of Vada's loss....I will always cherish memories of fun times together in grad school. She was an example of professional excellence and a genuine, compassionate person. Always I will smile when I remember her.
My deepest condolences to her family.
