Sadly, Rosie passed away in April 2012.
Our deepest sympathies to her family.

a massive stroke which affected the left side of her body. In

to the hospital rehab center where she will have to stay for
at least 6 more months. She is regaining some use of her left
leg, but still requires assistance for most basic functions.
