I'm so sorry to hear of Rose Ann's passing. We were friends while she was at Dreux High School in France. In fact, she spent Christmas holidays with my family when she was unable to go home to the Congo. I have tried to find where she was for the past 50 some years, but couldn't find her. So sorry that I was unable to reconnect with her. She was a wonderful person!

Miss seeing her every day. She was a wonderful person who loved living in our neighborhood. She walked her dog every day and kept me up to date on neighborhood news.

I will never forget the times I spent in Colorado visiting Ro and the family. I remember how much I enjoyed staying with her and how she took care of Lee and I. The last time she visited Connecticut I was so excited to see her and have her meet Ellie. We talked about my career and accomplishments and I remember how happy she was for me. I will remember her as a strong, classy, independent, and caring aunt whom every time I visited was left wishing I had more time to spend together. You are loved and will be missed.

I so miss my neighbor Rossanne. We so enjoyed our door step visits when she was walking Abby, who loved to run to me for a pat on the head. We kept each other informed of the neighborhood news and discussed politics as though we, and she probably could have, changed the country if we were in office. One of our favorite things to do was to get up at five in the morning the first week in June to watch the runners in the Rock and Roll marathon pass by our homes. This June will be a bit lonely without her.

Roseanne will always be in our hearts and I will always remember all the great memories of the times we spent together. I am very happy to have had the chance to spend some time with her when I was in San Diego last July. Her smile and laugh will always be something that I will always cherish and remember. She was a very special person. I know that she is in heaven with family and is smiling down on us. Miss you Ro. Cousin Larry

It has been one month since Ro left us and it is still very difficult to comprehend that she is really gone. We miss her terribly.

Little Bird Visit December 28th

Shared by Sandi Garcia on February 20, 2015

Late Sunday afternoon my dogs started barking and when they kept it up I finally went to the window to see what was going on.  Down in the little yard there was a small bird perched on the poop scoop.  Its back was to me and it had one leg and one wing stretched to the ground.  It was very still.  I quietly opened the screen door, tiptoed down the deck stairs and squatted down behind it.  I was sure it must be injured.  I put my hands softly around it and as I lifted it up it flew through the chain link fence and disappeared.  I puzzled over that odd encounter until I arrived at work on Monday and heard about Rosanna.  I will always believe that she stopped by to say goodbye and to let me know all was well.

When we lived in France we would often visit Paris and Rouen. I was very impressed by the statues of a strong woman on a horse. I was only four or five and every time we went I  asked a teenage Ro who it was; "it's me!"  she always said. She had me convinced the whole time we lived there. Ro and I often watched the movie of Joan of Arc together and Joan of Arc always reminded me of Ro, bold and independent. Even though Ro was joking with me, as the years rolled on it become more apparent that she really was that strong woman on the horse.
