    Dear Sledge Family,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. I worked with Rosie at AAIA before she retired. She was truly my ‘work mom’ and taught me so much about nursing as a new graduate. We shared a love of travel and through all of her and Jim’s suggestions New Orleans is still one of our favorite cities. Thinking of you during this difficult time and wishing you love and peace.

    I got to know Rosie from our small prayer group meetings at St Mary Magdaline. She had a beautiful personality and a fun spirit. I’m blessed to have known her. My deepest sympathy…

    I am so sorry about the loss of such a great lady. She loved her family so much ! I have been thinking about her so much since she has passed. I truly loved her. If everyone in this world was like Rosie we would live in a perfect world.
    Again I’m sorry.
    God Bless
