Dear cousins, you all have our deepest condolences for the loss of your mother, Rosie. I was shocked to find the news of her passing. We had talked just days before Easter, me calling her to do our regular “check-ins”. She had drawn a picture in her Easter card of the Pane di Pasqua our Nanna (Zia Teresa) would bake for her and her sisters, Chris and Vina for Easter. She joked and reminisced about those good old days. She always made sure to send a “Hi to Charlie” before she hung up. Rosie was so proud of her children and kept me updated on the progress of the new great-grandchild. She was a real gem! She will be sorely missed! Much love, Cousin Terri (Charlie, Rana and Chad) Hutton

Mrs DiCesare always had a smile and a laugh to share. I always left feeling lighter, loved and happy after visiting her or speaking with her. She was special to my whole family; a friend of my Mother’s since high school. She was fulfilled being with family, overcame difficulties bravely. My prayers and thoughts are with all of her children and grandchildren.

Marianna and family,
Our condolences on the loss of your mother. She was such a gracious and loving lady. As a young girl, when I would visit your house after school (St. Vincent’s), she was so ‘down to earth’ and made me feel so welcome. In later years, she always sat behind Cliff and I in church (on Mary’s altar side) and would tap me on the shoulder to say hello and ask about my family in her ‘matter-of-fact’ way.
Truly, a ‘motherly’ woman to all who knew her. Sincerest sympathy.
