  • Dear Juliette, Dave, and Family,
    So sorry to hear of your loss. I watched the video and was saddened that I missed so much of your lives. Such a beautiful family. I can still remember decorating Christmas ornaments at your house with the kids and listening to Rosanna play the clarinet. I think of you often as we pass the area where you live. Bless you all and may the good memories keep you going. I love you all. “Aunt” Tina.

  • I am very sorry to read of the untimely passing of your daughter. sister, mother and friend, Rosanna. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Death was never a part of God’s original plan for mankind. Sadly due to the disobedience of Adam in the Garden of Eden we all inherited sin and death (Romans 5:12). However, the Bible reveals that it is God’s purpose to restore the dead to life by means of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and death will be no more. Jesus said: “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”—John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:1-4. This time can only be made a reality by means of his Kingdom in which we pray for in the Lord’s Prayer. Once more I am truly sorry for your loss.

  • I knew Rosanna only briefly, she was such an intelligent and honest person! She was taken too soon, but I am sure she is at peace- I pray that her family especially her two boys, who she adored, feel the peace of God.
