Through old-fashioned hard work and an unfaltering commitment to their children, they created a life rich in values if not wealth. "Family is the most important thing you've got" is the Sanna motto that is oft-repeated, and anyone who comes in contact with Ralph and Rose experiences their natural instinct to share what they have with those they love.Come to Rose's Table, where you'll find the ultimate in comfort food.
