  1. I was so sorry to hear about your loss I was looking forward to seeing Rose when I m in Lowell next month . Guess it’s not to be. She was always a good friend to me and my parents. I have so many good memories of the Softee Creme. The town of Lowell should be grateful for the beautiful renovations they did. Who would have thought you could turn an old gas station into a wonderful place like the Softee Creme. I will miss her and pray for her. Joan Laux Tower

  2. A very special lady who gave me my first job at the Flower shop. She was a great mother and friend, It was a pleasure to know her,
