    Our most sincere condolences to Karlyne, Craig and families. We have many fond memories of Rosemarie at family gatherings where Rosemarie always had a good joke for us. There certainly was a lot of laughter when Rosemarie was in the house. What a wonderful memory to leave us with. Daryl & Silvana Dereski
