Roaslie "Rhodie" Stagno Obituary

Hello. My name is Rosalie Stagno, but my Gramma calls me Aunt Rhodie Stagno. No one was surprised with the name change because Gramma never calls anybody by their real names in our family. I crossed the rainbow bridge on February 9, 2024. Gramma picked the first day of Spring to be my birthday, March 20, 2008, so I almost made it to 16 years old.

I went to live with Gramma after I got in trouble with the Sharpsville law.  I didn’t do what I was blamed for, but somebody had to take the fall. He guy couldn’t pick a suspect out of a lineup of six but, he was told to pick one of us or drop it; he chose me. After I spent 10 days in solitary confinement Gramma said, “We better get you out of town before you get in anymore trouble. You’re coming to live with me”. It was nice at Grammas. Oh, I couldn’t just mozy around fields and pastures anymore, but I learned to slow down a little bit and take naps on the back porch in the sunshine with my new brother and sister. I got to run in and out anytime I wanted thanks to the dog door that Gramma gave us. She used to take us for rides in our big purple van. She didn’t know it really smelled like dog until she got a new car, so the rides weren’t as often as they had been. The Guys (she called us all Guys) and I thought it smelled just fine. She still brought us chicken nuggets whenever she went out, so that made up for fewer car rides.

After our Dusty Puppy and Isa’Bella’ took their turns crossing the Rainbow Bridge I started letting grandma pick me up more often and hold me like a baby. I got some really good belly rubs. She needed that and I have to admit that it felt really good especially when she got to my chicken wings. I think my back legs looked more like drumsticks, but we all know Gramma’s a little eccentric. 

One thing I want everybody to know from this note from beyond the Rainbow Bridge is that this place is wonderful, just wonderful. Don’t ever feel bad about letting us come here.  We’ll all be waiting for you to come get us and take us to Heaven with you when it’s time for you to leave earth. In the meanwhile, this side of the Rainbow Bridge is the best place ever to spend our time waiting. Besides, we come visit you all the time. You might not be able to see, hear or feel us, but we’re with you. So, just know that we’re all waiting, but there’s no need to hurry cause we’ve got plenty to do here; take your time.

Thank you for all the love that you gave to me. I send ALL of my love to Dad and Mom (David and Sarah) and Wyatt, Adeline and Ellie Taylor and Gramma Stagno (Nancy) from this side of the Rainbow Bridge.

I had the best life!
