Sister Rosanne lived down the street from us on Lawndale, babysat my children, was sponsor to them at confirmation, and was a good friend and inspiration to our whole family. She was a kind, generous, spiritual, and wise woman. We were so blessed to have her in our lives. She is with her Lord now. My prayers are with her and her family.
