"Rosy was my Data Processor off and on for the last 4 years. I was SO impressed with her dedication to her job as she battled this illness. Always positive even when I am sure she felt lousy and completely worn out. She was an amazing person and I will miss her greatly. Peace be with your family during this difficult time."
