Carol will always remember fondly her humorous rivalry with her “dear Craddock friend” Rosanna over their cross-town high school rivalry. Rosanna was a fine person and a delightful woman to know, and we will miss her.

We wish to send to Dale and her children and family our sincere sympathy.

Dear Dale, Teri, and Keri, You have always held a special place in my heart, and I am so sorry for your lose. Rosanna was a great lady, and so kind, and loving, and caring to both me and Kyle when he was little. He loved his Saturdays with her and Dale when we would be in basketball practice. There are so many more memories from the fun gourd festivals on the island and more. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love you guys!

Hi Teri,

I just found out from Rebecca about your mom. It must be a hard time for you. Wanted you to know I’m thinking about you and missing you up here in Fairbanks. I can tell you things are not as fun around this place without you around! Liked the video pictures of your mom….she was a beautiful lady. It must be very hard to say good bye.

Hang in there Teri

How wonderful that God granted you those years with Rosanna. She made your seclusion at the end of the Neck, a warm, comfortable retreat.
