Roseann and I were friends from Kindergarten through high school. We grew up in the same neighborhood and attended the same schools together. Roseann and her brother Mark along with Mark's girlfriend (cannot remember her name), were murdered in Tama County on Easter Sunday in 1980.

Rosie was a good-hearted person who didn't deserve to die the way she did. She is truly missed.
