Time flies. Wishing you all the best as you head off to college.
We’ve been lucky to have the Simone Rosens as our neighbors for 14 years. Gabe is a kind, thoughtful, and generally wonderful human being. It is awesome to see him continually shine and can’t wait to watch all the amazing things he will undoubtedly do. Go Gabe!
