    Hello Rosanna. I am so thankful that when the time felt right to share your family and life with us, Kevin contacted you. I am enjoying your weekly column just as much as I do the Amish Cook column. I don’t seem to think of questions but want you to know, I’ve so enjoyed everything you have wanted to share. Thank you for sharing with all of us.

    Am so enjoying Rosanna’s columns/stories and look forward to more of them.
    Any time we can learn and appreciate another person’s views helps to
    promote understanding and I prefer to look at the likenesses rather than differences.
    Although I would have a difficult time doing w/o the conveniences that
    electricity provide and my automobile and telephone (not a cell), I can appreciate how some parts of daily life are somewhat simpler w/o them.
    Keep up the good work and thank you.

    I have enjoyed your column, but what I enjoy the most is your smile when I see your picture. That’s what I call a million dollar smile! Have a great day.
