I was so saddened to hear of Rosanna's passing. I have so many fond, loving memories of my childhood spent in the DePasqua household. Rosanna had the best smile and laugh, not to mention she was a wonderful cook who always appreciated someone enjoying one of her dishes. She always had a warm hug and encouraging words for those who needed it. My condolences to the entire DePasqua family. May your happy memories sustain you in these difficult days. Take care of one another. xo
