Para mi querida hermana/For my loving sister,
Rosi linda y pura
Con una risa conmovedora
Estamos aquí para despedirte
Y dejarte saber que siempre estará
En nuestras almas y corazones
En el cielo sé que está rodeada  de mami y papi y otros familiares
Y por supuesto Abuela Provi, quien te dio una bienvenida Celestial, lleno de abrazos y muchos besos como siempre nos daba a todos nosotros.
Rosi beautiful and a true genuine person,
With that unique lifelong  smile,
We are here to say farewell,
And to let you know that you  will always be
in our hearts and souls.
In heaven, I know that you are surrounded by mami (mom) and papi (dad) and other relatives,
And of course, Abuela Provi (Grandmother Provi) who gave you a Heavenly welcome, full of hugs and many kisses as she always gave to us all.

I worked with Rosie at Kellogg’s and we shared many laughs and talks. She was my co-worker and I had the honor of calling friend. Rosie had a beautiful soul here on earth and still has a beautiful soul but now in heaven. I am sorry for your loss and pain. Till you meet again.. Dios te bendiga.
