I would like to say that my thoughts and prayers are with your family. I was a colleague of Rosalie and I always enjoyed seeing her. She was always so kind and I was sure to get a laugh out of something she said. She will be greatly missed.

Shannon, Robert, and Carl, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Rosalie was my best friend for more than 21 years and I will treasure our memories together. She had that special spirit about her that provided one with smiles and straight-talking. I miss her already but know that she will be with us forever in our hearts. She and you were and are a welcome addition to our family. Love, Auntie Jody

I am so sorry for the loss of such a family treasure like your loved one. They must have told wonderful stories and entertained many family and friends over the years. Please hold on to those. Take comfort from Psalms 34:18-“God is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit he saves”. My sincere condolences to the family and friends.

So sorry to hear of the loss of Rosalie. I’ve worked with her since 1999. She was always herself, funny and frank and full of energy. You knew you were going to hear what she thought, with nothing held back and no lies. I loved that about her. I hope having had her in your life is comfort, that you can pull on those memories to get through.

I am so sorry to hear of Rosalie’s passing. She and I worked together for many years at FFSC, and I enjoyed our conversations about IT and Australia and other topics. She had such a great sense of humor and a happy personality that it was always fun when she was around. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time of loss.
