- Larry and family. Prayers and sympathy to you and the family. Your Mom was a wonderful person and I asked Kay Wed, night if she had seen her. Said I was going to call her. I knew she didn't drive anymore and I always called to see if she wanted to go to the family reunion. You and your family are always welcome too. I will try to make it to her services if I can. If not I will be thinking of all of you. Rest in peace Rosie. My husband Mike
liked her so much he was probably waiting at the Golden Gates to greet her.

- Larry and all of Rosalie's extended family I just want to say how sorry I was to hear of her passing. We always had so much fun laughing and talking of older days with Granny Boss and all of the rest of our families at our annual BOSS REUNIONS in September each year. we have lost so many of our loved ones that is why our reunion just stopped. we have just a small handful at that with only the few family members left. We all laughed so much with the funny games we used to play at our reunions and talk of all of the good food we brought to share. Those are the fond memories I will always have of Rosalie. May God Bless Each and all and She lay in peaceful rest in Gods Hands now. Sincerely, Jeff. R. Moran

Connie and I will miss her as well. She was a fine person, and a great lady. Our condolences to you all.
