  1. My Beautiful sweet cousin….I remember the day your mom brought you to Grandma’s in Brooklyn for the first time. I was 5 and remember so clearly how pretty you were and I really do remember thinking ‘she’s so kind and beautiful, just like a fairy’. I was right and how sweet it was having you with us for far too brief a time. I love you, Ro.

  2. My dear sweet, precious friend how I miss you already. How I long to have had more time with you but the truth is it would never have been enough time. I truly thought we would grow old together as we continue on this journey through life. There will be a whole in my heart that NO ONE else can ever fill, nor do I want them to. I will treasure our years together and you will continue to inspire me as I reflect on the tremendous impact you have always had on my life. It was an honor and a blessing to have been soooo close to you for all these years. You leave quite a legacy behind. One of a most Godly woman who’s character and integrity is not seen often. A woman of excellence in every facet of your life. You lit up any room you were in with your beautiful smile and love of life, even living with profound loss. We shared a deep love for each other and a deep love for the Lord and I will miss our talks and studies and sharing of the things the Lord was doing in our lives. What a beautiful witness and testimony to the Lord your life was and oh how you steadfastly prayed for your loved ones. I pray every seed you sowed will bear much fruit for the glory of God and you will look down from above and be blessed. As deep as my sadness is that I can no longer have you here with me, I am equally joyful that you are now free and running in fields of grace with Nicole, your dad and your beloved Lord and Savior. So thank you my dear friend for loving me as you did. I will carry you in my heart until we can run together in those fields of grace and praise our Lord together around His Throne. Oh what a day that will be! Until then I will do as Paul said in Phil. 1:3 and “I will thank my God upon EVERY remembrance of you�. I love you so. 💔💔💔💔

  3. My Kind and Loving Cousin, it is so hard for us to believe you’ve left us. I remember the day your Mom brought you for the first time to Grandma’s house and I actually do remember what I thought as a little girl. I thought ‘she is so beautiful, like a fairy, and so nice and sweet’ and I was right. I love you and will miss you so very deeply.

  4. Rosanne, you were the glue that kept me together all these years that we worked together. You were always my biggest champion and believed in me even when I didn’t believe in myself. I could not have accomplished what I did in this office without you. You hung in there with me when things were really bad and never gave up. I wish you could have stayed to cross that finish line with us and reap the rewards of all of YOUR efforts in making that happen. You always had a piece of my heart and we shared a bond that went far beyond co-workers. I will miss your spontaneous contagious laugh, your warm welcoming smile, your sweet breathy,comforting voice and your very presence in the office and in our lives. I am very blessed to have know such an honest, sincere and loving woman. You have left a hole in all of our hearts, one that not many on this earth could ever fill. I take comfort in knowing that you are in the arms of God now, and that you have been reunited with your beloved Nicole and all of your loved ones who passed before you. I will miss you dearly my friend. I am truly heartbroken. I know you are at peace and in a better place than those you left behind here on this earth.I will pray for your loved ones and especially for your son Ricky, the apple of your eye. I can attest to how much you adored him and how proud you were of the man that he has become. Talk about a great mom and role model. That was who you were! We have all lost a very special lady and the grief will take a very long time to subside. Miss and love you! Christine

  5. We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Rosanne’s positive and uplifting spirit will continue to live in all that she has left behind because of who she was.

  6. Rosanne, You will be missed beyond words, I am so blessed to have had you as friend and colleague for the last 5 plus years. I am sitting looking at your empty seat and wish I had a chance to say one more goodbye. I will miss our daily conversations, your sense of humor and quick wit. I will especially miss your kind and caring spirit . You were a proud mother , loving sister and daughter. I will keep your family in my prayers .God bless you, may you rest in peace

  7. Our deepest condolences to the Cresci family. Rosanne was one of a kind. Working with her many years ago brings back happy memories. Now she is with her beautiful Nicole. May you all find peace knowing what a beautiful person Rosanne was and the number of lives she touched just being Rosanne. May she rest in peace.

  8. Rosanne you will be so missed. Thank you for letting me be your dentist and friend for all these years. Rest In Peace and be with God.

  9. Heaven has been blessed with another angel. Although our time together was brief, to say you made an impact on my life would be an understatement. We shared a special connection–both of us being single mothers–The laughs we shared, as well as the tears. I am certain that your faith has brought you on angels wings to be reunited with loved ones…especially Nicole, who was taken from you too soon. Such a blessing to have known you. Always in my prayers…..

  10. We are so sorry to hear of RoseanneΓÇÖs passing. Although we havenΓÇÖt kept in touch since our years with European American Bank, we will always think of Roseanne with fondness. We were all like family and had so much fun together. We will treasure these memories always. Rest In Peace old friend.
