I have such fond memories of Rosalie. She was my second home as a child. I spent countless hours playing with Lisa at their house and made many happy memories. Rosalie was always very generous, kind and her laugh will forever be cemented in my mind. You will be missed Rosalie! My sincerest condolences to the Alger Family. Affectionately, Kate
