Rosalie and I worked together in kindergarten for 10 years. She made every child feel special, loved and brought out the best in them. Rosalie helped make our classroom feel like a second home to our little kindergartners. I have received numerous calls from parents telling me how much Rosalie meant to their children, and what a wonderful, caring lady she was. My years working with Rosalie were very special, and I will always treasure them. I will miss my dear friend!
