Rose Catherine Cafarella Henderson

Rose(Chick) Was my mother's "best friend" as well as her sister. She married young, evidently to a gangster.(see his shoulder in the photo) She divorced him and he was deported to Sicily. Despite the circumstances, Grammie never forgave her for divorcing. She remarried to an Alabama navy boy named Roy Henderson. While he was in Europe during the war, she contracted Pneumonia and died at age 19.
