    Rosalie, I am just heartbroken about your passing. You were a wonderful woman. I am sorry we only had a few years of knowing each other. Your trips to see Stephanie’s family was a treat for me. You were so generous. The cakes, gifts and most of all, your friendship was a blessing. I love you Rosalie, for the kind, compassionate woman you were and for giving the world your amazing girls! Rest in peace sweetheart!
