My deepest and most sincere condolences to all of you, my dear cousins. Rosie was a sweetie! I have fond memories of being at your house when I’d play with Teresa. We loved making mud pies together! I have on my mantle a picture of Mom and Dad and their wedding party. There is Sweet Rosie—just darling! I’m sure there were lots of relatives waiting to greet her with big hugs! I shall keep Rosie and all of you in my prayers. ???
