- Alvera my second mom, my friend. Her daughter Janet and I have been friends for 53 years and Jackie too. Over the years I have been to many Bosse / Rossmiller family celebrations and gatherings and consider them family to me. Alvera and I had a special bond we went on lots of outings together she was so much fun to be around. The memories we had together will be in my heart forever. I loved her and will miss her so much. In sympathy. Peace & Love. Jeanine.
