Mr. Rosier was a very special person. I will always remember his warm and caring personality, as well as his smile. He was a genuine soul, which you rarely find anymore. Im sure that he is looking down on us whispering Always say the rosary His devotion to the Immaculate and Sacred Hearts were truly inspiring. I only pray that I may one day imitate his love and faith. He will be missed by so many of us here at St Anthonys BLessings, Jason Brandi Schexnayder and Children....
