Hello dear Family. Please know that you are thought of, prayed for, and loved! We adored our Sister-in-law and our Aunt Rosie. We love y'all!

I am so sorry for your loss. Rosa always seem to have a smile on her face. Her and Lorraine Z. would stop by the FBCN office on Friday mornings to visit after they had been out at garage sales. They always seemed to have so much fun together. My thoughts and prayers are with you. She will be missed.
