Rosemary, I wish you as much success in your retirement as you have had with Marden-Kane. Thank you for being an exemplary employee, a sought after promotion specialist and the best Chicago office Manager. On behalf of the Kane family and everyone at MK through the years, thank you for 17 years of service. Best wishes and good luck to you in the next chapter of your life.
(Alan Richter – current NY office colleague)
Rosemary, I want you to know how truly blessed I feel to have had the honor and privilege to work with you and most importantly be your friend for over 17 years. I will personally miss your friendly voice, your engaging story-telling as well as your unlimited guidance and expertise to rely on. I hope that we can continue our once a year get-together dinner in Chicago for many years to come. You are truly a very special person that will be missed by all. But, the time is right for you to finally see and explore every National Park this country has waiting for you. May the next chapter of your life bring you all that you seek and more.
Love always, Fae
(Fae Savignano – current NY office colleague)
You’ve taught me how to deal with issues that don’t go according to plan when they are the rule & not the exception. You would recommend “Take a deep breath because it’s probably only the beginning” and “Serenity Now”. It was a pleasure learning from you and working with you for 12 years. It was very helpful challenging each other when we needed to discuss a legal POV. Thank you for bestowing your wisdom upon me so I can take that next step into MK lore as you have done so professionally.
(Adam Kramer – current Chicago office colleague)
Happy Retirement, Rosemary! Just want to say that it has been a pleasure working with you and I wish you well as you trade your five day work weeks to seven day weekends! Enjoy and all the Best!
(Cheryl Thornton – current NY office colleague)
Congratulations Rosemary on your years of helping clients and being such a joy to work with.
(Marc Wortsman – former NY office colleague)
Wishing a very special person a fulfilling retirement. May your new journey be filled with joy!
(Barbara Chien – current NY office colleague)
Rosemary, I was delighted to hear that you are retiring! You have been a huge part of developing my career, and more importantly a wonderful friend!
Some of my best memories were sharing the downtown Chicago office with you.
Our lunch break walks to Navy Pier were the perfect break in the day!
Wishing you many happy days and lots of travel!
(Holly Good – former Chicago office colleague)
Rosemary, you’ve been an awesome associate and friend for about 20 years and I’m so happy to know you and have worked with you. First you were a client, then a terrific associate. I hope that you and Steve get to do all the things you haven’t had time for. I also hope that we’ll always find time to meet regularly and share a meal and ongoing friendship. Congrats to you on a great career and best wishes for your continued success during the next phase of your life. You have always been – and remain – a great blessing to me!
(Pennee Milazzo – former Chicago associate)
It is with great pleasure that I say to you “Congratulations on your retirement”. You have been working long and hard for your clients, while managing the Chicago office. You have earned the right to retire. Nowadays the word “retire” has many meanings. To some, it means exploring a new area of interest. To others, it means following a passion that was never followed. Some people travel; and yet some people just make time for themselves to read a good book or get together more often with friends. Whatever your plans are, I wish you all the happiness you deserve. It’s been great seeing you these past years at the PMA Law Conference and though we may not see each other often, I have good memories of when we worked together at MK.
I wish you all the best now and in the future –
(Angela Leonard – former NY office colleague)
Congratulations, Rosemary! I hope you take lots of fabulous trips and enjoy every second of it. I will miss our conversations and the laughs!
(Jennifer Hibbs – current NY office colleague)
Congratulations on your retirement, Rosemary! It was a joy working with such a dedicated professional like yourself and I wish you all the best!
(Rich Fascianella – former NY office colleague)
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Rosemary for 4+ years. She is my favorite person to work with. I’ve learned so much from her. She is the reason why I love sweepstakes. We’ve had some crazy questions and requests for Rosemary over the years and she takes them all with a smile on her face. She’s seen it all and needs to write a book! I will miss our laughs and talking about our various TV shows and books. We greatly appreciate all of her hard work and dedication. We wish her all the best in her retirement and know she is going to have a blast traveling the world!
(Vibes – current Client)
Rosemary has been an absolute pleasure to work with ever since we started working together last October. From the start, she has always been extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. She is always in great spirits and has a positive attitude every time we speak together. I have learned a ton about sweepstakes since working together and would not be able to successfully run these sweepstakes with my clients without her. I appreciate her hard work and dedication and her ability to always be friendly and genuinely interested in hearing about my day. I wish her the best of luck in her retirement and know she will enjoy it!
(Vibes – current Client)
It was wonderful working with Rosemary for so many years. Even though she was in the Chicago office and didn’t work with me directly in New York, she was only a phone call away and was always willing to offer help in any way she could. Congratulations Rosemary and enjoy every minute of your retirement and I hope that you can fulfill all the dreams on your bucket list. The best of luck!!! Love you, xoxo
(Jessie Auletti – former NY office colleague)
Rosemary: Fae tells me you are retiring, CONGRATULATIONS!
I don’t know if you remember me as I was only a teenager back in 2001, but I do remember having an enjoyable working relationship with you – creating and implementing unique promotions. Enjoy the next phase of your life, you deserve it!
(Paul Goldman – former NY office colleague)
Rosemary, Good luck and best wishes on your retirement!
(Len Bierman – former NY office colleague)
This is bittersweet news; we’ll certainly miss working with you but are hopeful you’ll have a fantastic retirement. It has been a pleasure working with you over the years and I along with the Loeb team wish you nothing but the best. We’ll be sure to continue the Loeb/Marden-Kane relationship with Adam and Fae moving forward but you’ll certainly be missed.
All the best,
(Loeb & Loeb)
Congrats! I wish you the best and an active, exciting retirement.
(Lynx Research – current client)
Rosemary- A ray of sunshine! A detailed individual, who is simply great to work with. I will miss her laughter and joy.

This news is truly bitter sweet. First and foremost, congratulations! I’m so very happy for you and wish you all the best in your retirement. But selfishly, I’m a little sad I won’t have a chance to work with you again. You’ve been a wonderful partner, but more importantly a wonderful person to work with and you always put a smile on my face every time we spoke. You will be truly missed. All the best,
(Plan B – current client)
