Rosie was my supervisor at VA..She was the best, and a dear friend of mine for almost 30 years..We worked hard, laughed alot and made many fond memories.. She’ll always be in my heart and I’ll miss her so much


Dear Cousin Rosanna,
You will forever be in my heart, I will always be grateful of how you gave me my first babysitting job at 16 years old. I loved all of your boys, and though they could be a handful, you and John let me bring my boyfriend along to help. We came from a big family,but you cousin,always made me feel welcomed and loved. Rest In Peace dear cousin, your cousin Danette

Rosie was also my supervisor at the VA, early in my career. She was like my work Mom, always trying to steer me in the right direction with a smile but a firm hand. She was very influential in my career at the VA. She always spoke lovingly of her rascally boys and how she would chase them around the dining room table with a wooden spoon when they were naughty. I can only imaging the stories you boys have to tell! She was a great lady and I am glad to have known her.My sympathies to all of you.
