In Memory of RoRo

There was no softer heart, no one as giving or as kind, and no one who could calm and comfort our children like her.  She was an extension of our family, ALL of our families, and with her sudden passing last May,  the loss is still tangible.

Rosalie Finocchio, RoRo, was a reassuring voice, a trusted friend and a grandmother to our children.  There is NOTHING more personal than having someone care for your babies and though we all thanked her a hundred times, it just doesn't seem like enough.

According to her family, one of her favorite pastimes was to walk at Tod's point with her husband, Doug.  Through a simple yet meaningful gesture, let's give RoRo & HER FAMILY a Memorial bench at one of the most beautiful places in the town that she loved so much.   A place where people can SLOW DOWN to appreciate the here and now.  A plaque that allows others walking by to look at her name and think whether they knew her or not, this woman made an impact .  

Whether it was 2 years ago or 20, if Rosalie touched your life in some way, consider giving even a small donation.  

The total cost of bench and plaque is $2500.  The plaque will be from ALL  who give.   Any remaining funds will be donated to St. Jude Children's Hospital.  

We will keep everyone posted on the status of the bench.  As of right now we are on a long waiting list.

Thank you,
