I too had the honor and pleasure of calling Ro my friend.  She gave 
light and joy to everyone that knew her.  There was never a negative 
word or comment.  She was always positive and upbeat.  She taught me 
much about living life to the fullest.

I went to the funeral.  It was hard for me.  I haven't cried that 
much in a while.  I will miss her greatly.  After the service, we all 
went to a restaurant that Ro favored to celebrate her life.  She will 
live on in our hearts.
