Rosalie was a neighbor for many years and a wonderful friend of our family. She always had a big smile and some kind words to share with you. We enjoyed many good times together on Elmwood Drive and Maryland Avenue back in the 60s and 70s. Rosalie and her family will certainly be in our thoughts and prayers.

Rosalie was so kind and quiet. We discovered that her son and I had the same disease about 20 years ago and I introduced her to the support group I was attending. It was my blessing to get to know her.
May she rest in peace and rise in glory.

I'm so sorry that I can't get there to be with the family. I just had stents put in at Duke hospital and can't get around for a while. Hopefully we will be able to get together in the near future with a family reunion. All my love Jerry
