Everyone loved Mrs. Rosa!!! I always enjoyed spending the night at Erika's house. Mrs. Rosa always made you feel like it was your home too not to mention she made the most amazing food! You could just feel the closeness that she shared with her family. She will truly be missed! Praying for peace and comfort for all of you.

I will remember those days as well. She will be greatly missed. She always came in with a smile. As we sat around the table at the nursing home, I couldn't help but laugh with you and your family even on a rough day. Loved her.
