Words cannot express the sadness my family feels having just learned of Dr, Rossi’s passing. Our thoughts are with you and the entire family. Dr. Rossi cared for my sons, Josh and Max, for many years with the ultimate compassion and devotion. He wasn’t just their doctor, he was their friend. Not matter how busy he was he made us feel like we were a top priority. I still remember his “ties” and how he always wore one of the ties my boys gave him when they had an appointment. We never really had a chance to say goodbye when he left NYC, something I have always felt very badly about. It is my hope he knew how much he meant to us. He was an incredible person, irreplaceable!

I met Dr. Ed on March 3, 2000 at Mt. Sinai hospital, the day my oldest daughter, Calee, was born. He and Dr. Wishnik also cared for my second daughter, Mollie in 2002. I knew he was so happy to leave NYC for Warwick, and I was grateful to be able to call on him when we were in Tuxedo Park. His smile, ties and compassion will forever be remembered by so many families. We are truly blessed to have known him. Margie Sung and family

Dr. Rossi was an extraordinary human being. Meeting for the first time on October 4, 1995 at NYU with the birth of Ian Oglesby we were close growing him up. From visits in NYC with Dr. Marcia Wishnink we recall every milestone, shot, illness, check up, sports physical etc. Dr. Rossi was a huge part of our lives and all the families he worked with. Even as late as this year, Ian reached for him while at college, came into see him, caught up with him and Dr. Rossi beaming and infectious smile and pride radiated. Last year I finally convinced him to join the Board of Directors at PARENTS UNITED LEARNING THE SPECIAL EDUCATION SYSTEM (PULSES) because his deep compassion and love for human kind was a lifetime commitment of his. He would fight at the CSE table for children's services and classifications. Dr. Rossi you are in Heaven now where God needed you more to help those angel children. We miss and love you and pray that your legacy here on earth continues through all those you touched, helped and loved. 😇😷🤕😭❤
