“Many hugs, thoughts, and prayers to you all. I will cherish my memories of Rosella as she was our neighbor, good friend of our family, and like a Grandma to me. She was such a sweet and caring person and I will always remember her smile. I enjoyed spending time with her and family over the years. Rosie had a heart of gold. I was thinking after I heard and remembered she was the first one to call me by my nickname. She always welcomed us into her home and family as if we were a part of it as well.”
