    Aunt Rosie, I can close my eyes and still hear that special laugh of yours. You are very special and so loved. You will be missed, but I can sure picture one grand reunion in heaven right now. As sad as we are here on earth, I know the trumpets are sounding and maybe a little guitar by Uncle Jim. I have such great memories growing up and coming to Valpo for pig roasts and picnics. May you rest in peace dear sweet Aunt! Hugs and prayers to all my cousins. Love you all and may your memories bring you much comfort today and always. Love, Diane
