    Rosie was amazing. i worked with Pat at TWA and was fortunate to be friends with her and her family. Mitsuo is happy that she has finally joined him in Heaven. He has waited a long time to have his gorgeous Bride by his side.. My condolences to all of the incredible family. Love ya Tan,,,
    PS: I bet he is driving her around in a Mercury..from cloud to cloud.

    Rosie and Mits were very special members of the Greatest Generation. They made our childhood in Dogtown a magical time for all of the neighborhood kids. May Rosie and Mits Rest In Peace.💕

    I have known the Saito Family for 70 years. Pat is still one of my dearest friends. I had the greatest respect and admiration for Rosie and Mitsi. They were wonderful people in the neighborhood in Dogtown where we all grew up. I saw Rosie just two years ago and she still remembered me after all these years. I am sorry to see her pass, but she is in a good place now. I remember her walking every day up to her job at Schneidhorst Restaurant where she worked. Up that long hill on Kraft Street she would go, striding out. Mitsi would amaze us children with his beautiful handmade kites and fly them for us occasionally. They were a wonderful couple! I will always remember them both. God be with the family. Know that we are with you in spirit. Wish we could be with you also in person.
