    May you draw close to the hearer of prayer knowing that God is always there to carry the burden that we just simply cannot bear, Ps 55:22. May you hope in God's promise to relieve all grief and restore life to those who sleep in death but still live in God's memory, Acts 24:15, Isaiah 26:19. My condolences for your loss.

    My sincere condolences to the family. I remember Rosanne as a highly regarded teacher at my elementary school, P.S. 2. She was my sister's teacher and one of her roll models, inspiring my sister to go on and become a teacher. Later on my, because her mother was one of my neighbors, my wife and I became friends with Rosanne and Fred and got to enjoy their company when they visited the City..
