My name is Barbara Stise, Rose was my sister. My family and I were as shocked and sadden why what happened to Rose and Alex. They had been together for well over 40 years, they worked together & if you found one the other was never far off. They loved each other they were creative, caring and loving to a fault.
The tragic fire in Hoboken has shaken us to our core but I am so immensely touched by the out pouring of love and support that their friends and co-workers have shown us.
But now we have to look to the funeral arrangements for both of them. I was Rose's only sister and last living relative. But Alex had no next of kin and I can't not in good conscious attend to my sister final arrangements and not take care of Alex's.
Funds are limited and money is short as you know so every little bit helps.
