Dear Gentile Rosalie,

How fortunate I have been to be next to you at mass and share with you the grace of our time with Christ. How fellow Parishioners greeted you before and after Mass You who have been the great example of Christian love. For seventy years you shared your voice in Our Lady of the Rosary Choir. Throughout your life you shared the way to live to your Parents, Brothers, their families, co-workers, and friends. I will miss you Dear Rosalie. love, Pauline

The world has lost a truly lovely woman. Rosalie was a rare beauty who treated everyone with love and respect. She set the standard for gentleness. She was able to engage all people and let them know they had her full attention and concern. Rosalie brought love, joy and hope to us all. The world is a lonely place without her here. Her beauty will now live for eternity in Paradise with all those we have loved who have gone on before her. Heaven is an even more beautiful place with an angel like Rosalie there. I thank GOD that we were able to have her in our lives.
Blessings to the entire Tarantino family.
Fondly,
Mark Kenneth Shull and Family
