I am so sad to hear of Rosie's passing. She was so very talented. I was very fortunate to have Rosie accompany me in performances at Roosevelt. What a wonderful smile and infectious laugh she had!

I was fortunate enough to know Rosie as a fellow student at Roosevelt University. I loved her intellect and especially her incredible wit. She was a fabulous musician as well, blowing us away with her uncanny ability and sensitivity. She will always have a place in my heart. Rest well, Rosie.
