My deepest condolences to the family. I have very fond memories of Rosanne. We spent many a day at Edgewood Pool and at various haunts around town. She was always joyful and full of fun. I am truly sorry for the loss of such a delightful person.

Harvey, Brian, Jason and families, I was so shocked to see the post today of one of the nicest ladies I have ever known. She always made people feel welcome, always looked you in the eye when conversing and always had a smile on her face. I only have good memories of her. You picked the perfect picture of Rosanne....that's how I want to remember her! Prayers for her family.
