    I am so sorry about the loss of Rosalie. My thoughts and prayers are with Bob and the girls. It was good to see Rosalie a few years ago when she visited Binghamton. If anyone gets through the golden gate, Rosalie will. I am going to miss her.

    Rosie was an amazing lady that I had the great fortune to work with. I always enjoyed talking art with her and she always spoke fondly of her family. She was a strong and amazing spirit! Peace be with her and her family.
