For many years Rosetta and family were our neighbors. Whenever we saw her, she had a ready smile. And as we drove by, Rosetta always took the time to wave. We hope to meet with the family on Saturday; however a prior obligation may prevent us from attending. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
