De Roziere Family,
I am so sorry that Olivia is away from you. I know you must be hurting; it sounds as if she fought her battle as courageously as she lived her life. I remember Olivia as such a lively personality! Suzanne, I miss you so much and wish that I could be there for you today. I am praying for all of you in this loss. Know that my whole family grieves with you; your family is an extension of ours, with memories that are locked together. May you find a peace in understanding that there is a purpose beyond loss.
My deepest sympathy.
Olivia was a delight to know.
I will always remember Olivia as my friend who was there for me when no other friends were. We were just beginning to become close when she found out the diagnosis of cancer.
She was so incredibly brave, I was amazed. Not once did I hear her complain.
We had many talks, and she absolutely adored her daughters. She was only concerned about their future, not herself.
I will miss talking with her about good books, our girls, history, and just good conversation.
I know she is with her mother now.
“I will see you again some day dear friend, where there will be no pain and heartbreak…I will always remember you! “
Bob, my thoughts are with you all on this sad occasion. I cannot be there for the funeral but I hope you will let me know when you have a celebration of her life.
Bob, I am so sorry to hear of Olivia’s death. I’ll not be able to be there for the funeral Mass as I have to work but my thoughts will be with you all on this sad oiccasion. Please include me if you have a celebration of her life. Anita
Olivia was my cousin, and I always thought she was beautiful and funny. I am sad to know she is gone, but happy to know she is no longer suffering.
Your time here was way to short and I’m so sorry that you had to leave so soon.
You were such a fun-loving, nice person and it was a pleasure knowing you. I’ll never forget you.
You were always in my thoughts and prayers.
May God comfort your family for their loss.
I will continue to pray for your family.
We will miss you Olivia. We always looked forward to running into you and Vicki at the festivals. You were so funny. We are sorry you had to suffer so much. We know you are in heaven with your mom. Love you!
Olivia was a joy to work with and it was a pleasure knowing her! She will be truly missed! My thoughts & prayers are with her family!

Olivia I will always remember you as always having a smile on your face and something nice to say. I’ll see you on the other side.
