Brenton and Cathy DeLong
Our condolences to the countless family members and friends who will miss Aunt Rosalie. You did not have to know her long before you saw her strength of spirit. That spirit will be sadly missed, but please know that a part of that spirit survives in all of us whose lives she touched with her wisdom, compassion and humour. My wife, Cathy loves to tell the story of how Aunt Rosalie pulled her aside many years ago, just before we were married, and said, “So, let me tell you what you are getting into by marrying a DeLong man.” We have laughed about it many times since. We will miss Aunt Rosalie very much.
