I will always remember Rosa with very fond memories. She always showed me a lot of kindness and love. I have know this sweet lady since I have had memories. I remember going to her home to celebrate Christmas with her family. She was one of the best cooks that I know besides my dear aunt Auria rest her soul. My aunt knew her too since we are all from the small town of Lares, Puerto Rico. I never told her tia died 2 1/2 years ago. They will have a nice reunion in heaven, along with Ray. God Bless them.
