It is with a heavy heart that I think of all the memories I have of Roseann. The best one was last year, when Nana and I went to visit her, Sam, and Debbie. Roseann may be gone, but she will never be forgotten. She lives on in the memories of her children, her children’s children, and everyone she loved.
