She will be missed by everyone as she was my aunt and my Dad's sister. Always treated me great and had respect for me. In my later years we did get a lot closer and always was in touch with each other. I will forever say a pray for my aunt as well as all the other members of the La Rosa family that have left us and gone on the great beyond. Love you aunt Marie and hope you are happy up there with the family. R.S.P.
