Rossana always brightened my work day with her infectious chuckle and enthusiasm. It was a pleasure to know her and work along side her.

The moment that you died my heart was torn in two. One side filled with heartache the other side died with you. I often lie awake at night when the world is fast asleep and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheeks. Remembering you is easy, I do it everyday but missing you is heartache that never goes away. I hold you tightly with in my heart and there you will remain until the joyous day arrives that we will meet again. Love you. Rick

Rossana was an Amazing woman! She was a sheer joy to work with always! I am so very sorry for this extremely great loss to her family! I worked with Rossana for almost 3 years, and she was such a great person to work with, and to know! She was always so happy! She was dependable, and did her job extremely well too!
She was a great team player, and everyone enjoyed working alongside her. Her pride for her family was extreme. Especially her grandchildren. She was so proud of them. RIP Rossana.
