    I’ve only known Rosalie four about four years. She had a great sense of humor and was very likeable. Everyone loved her and will miss her.

    Rosalie attended our Bible Studies while at Autumnwood Village and then at Miller’s. We all loved her so much and will miss her greatly. God bless her family.
