  1. Why are you trying to make it seem like the husband was abusive?

    1. because he surely was mentally at first then deadly

    2. Because he murdered her

  2. Because he was you fool. He murdered her.....You obviously are still deluded about the reality of what happened.

  3. Thank you for keeping this website and this memorial so that no one forgets or minimizes that magnitude of this and these crimes. Comments like the first one demonstrate that DENIAL is exactly what allows this behavior to persist and be shrugged off.

  4. I ran for you today Rosie!, I got your back sistah!

  5. Its been a year and you are badlyl missed but I know you are smiling down on us. Wherever you are you are making a difference w/ your beauty and grace and your great spirit. Even the vicious nature of your death cannot take away or mar the great legacy of kindness and faith that you left in the world. I miss you every day! Wherever you are..I got your back sister!

    This crime is beyond sad. Such a vibrant, lovely, friendly woman was taken so violently. I think the race is a wonderful tribute to her and will keep her spirit alive and her love for running will inspire others to work harder. Shirley Coffey

  7. Finger hug Rosie :>

  8. I always cry when I read through this page. She was such an amazing woman and I am so blessed to have had her in my life.

  9. That's beautiful.

  10. We worked together at a local restaurant, and though I didn't know you well, I came to respect your gentle spirit and warm smile. Sometimes, I still cannot believe that you're gone. Everything they've said about you as a person above is true; you were a gift to everyone who knew you. You will forever be greatly missed~

  11. I am so glad this page is still up. It is the only place I can still read exserts from her story. This page keeps the memories of such a wonderful woman going.

  12. You have been gone for 10 years Rosie and I still miss you so much. You are with me every day. I will never forget you.

    Riose was my cousin and she was a lovely person. She was hard working and caring individual. Her situation made me aware of my abusive marriage and I started divorce proceedings in 2014
