Dear Rosemary, it was with great sadness that I heard of Rosetta’s passing away. I have lots of memories of Rosetta. She was a strong willed person and very generous as Jean-Lui said. She was a woman who suffered a lot but was strong enough to keep going and whose priorities in life were her children and grandchildren. We all cherish moments of time passed with her (even if mine are of way back). She has left behind beautiful memories and I’m sure she will be missed.
Rest in peace dear Rosetta.
Un forte abbraccio a te e la tua famiglia. Rose
Sentite condoglianze a tutta la famiglia!
Our deepest condolences to the families. Such a sweet and loving woman. So sad to hear of her passing. Wishing you peace during this difficult time. She loved her grandchildren so much. Hold onto your memories. With love
Dear Rosemary and family, I’m so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Sending you sincere condolences at this difficult time. May she Rest In Peace.
My deepest condolences to you and your family.
I loved the beautiful speeches and sermon celebrating her life.
I know how hard it is to loose a “mother”.
(I did not know she loved card games so much, I was waiting to play Bingo with her).
“In Life we loved you dearly,
in death we love you still,
In our hearts you hold a place,
no one else will ever fill.
Our deepest condolences
It is a sad time for everyone who knew Rosetta. She was a kind, caring and loving individual who demonstrated extreme grace and dignity no matter the obstacle.

Those precious gifts will always live on in you.
Our memories of times spent together will be treasured always. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the entire family.
