    We had just talked after Christmas so it’s hard to believe you are gone!
    I know that God was waiting with open arms for your arrival. And sweet Kuni will be so happy to see his Mom!
    I will miss our chats and your sweet smile.
    My deepest condolences and peace to your family.
    From your friend & neighbor,

    So sorry for your families’ loss. I have been friends with Rozanne for about 5 years. She was a wonderful friend, parent, grandmother and great grandmother. I’m glad she is in heaven now and no longer suffering. I loved her so much and still do. We met under some unusual circumstances but we both felt it was meant to be. Even though it was short, I’m so glad we had that time together as friends. As many friends, family, neighbors etc, will miss her, I will miss her as well.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Rozanne was such a kind, caring and loving person. She would always send birthday cards. My mom and her were so close. More like sisters than cousins. She will be missed! 🙏
