I'm so sorry for your loss & I know that no words I have can remove the pain you all are feeling - we know Aunt Rosie was an incredible person - she loved large, therefore she was loved large and she will be missed by all who had the luxury of knowing her! Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you - I'm a pretty good listener and always have an ear to listen, if anyone needs to talk. May you forever rest in peace Rosie
