So many fun memories. I’ll share my favorite. I was in the Marine Corps when Tom, Roseanne and the boys were vacationing at Disneyland. I picked them up and drove them to Camp Pendleton to see the barracks. Women weren’t allowed inside the barracks . So I took the boys. As they walked through all my buddies gave the boys rounds of ammunition. Roseanne was scared so we had the boys throw them into the waves in the ocean. We all laughed about this later. Roseanne always kept a close eye on her boys Rest In Peace

Dear Timmy,

It is with deep sadness that I extend my condolences to you and your family.

Little did I know way back when I was just a young teen and babysitter to you and your beloved brother, Tommy, that it marked the beginning of a lifelong friendship!

I have many fond memories of your Mom that I will cherish forever. Throughout the years we shared loads of laughter, along with life's ups and downs, and our friendship withstood the test of time.

Although life has brought many changes over the years, her love for you and Tommy, Brian and Kevin was steadfast. She was so proud of all of you.

Rosanne will always hold a special place in my heart. I know that she is at peace, and so happy to be reunited with all of her loved ones, both 2 legged and 4 legged ones!

A new star lights the sky, and it will guide you always. 💕

Love, Karen

To Tim, Brian, & Kevin
With a sad heart I give my deepest sympathy .
I'm sure Rosanne knew how much you loved her and I KNOW SHE LOVED YOU GUYS WITH ALL HER HEART.
She's with the LORD in Heaven now and happy to be reunited
with Lenny, Tommy, her mother Rose, and all her family and friends
that preceded her birth in to eternal life of Heaven.
Cherish all the great memories that you'll always have of her.

With ALL MY LOVE, Dad / Grandpa

She was an amazing grandmother to my brother and I. You couldn't ask for better times with her and grandpa Lenny when we were growing up. After so many years and being there for each other, it is sad to say goodbye.

She had a tremendous heart, and she was always there for anyone in the family who was in need. She also showed incredible love towards animals, especially her pets over the years. She couldn't even watch animal shows on TV out of fear that it might show an animal being harmed.

She is now reunited with grandpa Lenny, her son/my uncle Tommy, her parents, and every other loved one. I can imagine the incredible reunion that must have happened when she crossed over to the other side. I can imagine the reunion with all of her ecstatic dogs, as they smothered her with love. She wouldn't have it any other way. So long for now, but we shall reunite some day. You will be missed.

Love,
Brian

Rosanne and I are the Grandmothers of Brian and Kevin .

She was a beautiful lady! When ever we were together she was always smiling. When the boys were young she used to make them thier favorite dish Olie Olie! The boys loved to visit her and have fun with all of the dogs!

She will be missed by all of us, but I know one day we will all be together again! Till then I know she will be safe in Gods hands!

I never knew anyone, who had a bigger love of animals, then our Rosanne. She loved them all, whether big or small. Don't tell her they were ugly looking, cause she would let you know about it.
I always told her, there will be a special place in heaven for you, cause if people took care of each other, the way you took care of all your fur babies, this world would be a better place.
