Aunt Rosie was such a special lady & a wonderful Aunt! Although I live some distance away, we have stayed in touch over the years. I enjoyed talking with her especially on ancestry topics. She had a memory like no other! Thankfully I did get to see her 2 years ago when I came back to Ohio for a visit. She will be missed! Condolences to all her family. Rest In Peace!
