    We want to offer our condolences to Rosie’s sister, niece’s, and nephews. As she was married to Mom’s brother for 50 years, we always considered her our Aunt Rosie. She and mom have corresponded up until this past year and we visited her when we made a trip to MI 3 years ago. Mom no longer can write letters but she is deeply sad as we all are. Rest in Peace, Rosie
