    ❤❤ Ohhh, where to begin. Auntie you were a strong woman with a big heart. Remembering all of the times we hid in snow forts, and everywhere else so that A&B could sleep over, or vice-versa. Sitting in your kitchen listening to the radio and playing pokeno. All of the birthday parties and Sunday dinners at Nunna and Grampy's house. Thank you fir those and many other memories Rest peacefully ❤

    My sister and I could not have had a better Mom in the world. She was very smart, and she knew how to read people. She passed that on to my sister and myself. She fought like a bull , ran like a bull and passed like a bull. But there was No Bullsh@t with our Mom. From the day she was born till the day she passed you just mess with a woman called "Roseanne" We all think of you ever minute. My loving mother!
