It’s not only when it’s easy and good but when it’s hard and tough,” Rosas said. “We’ve put a statement out and to be fair we’re letting the legal process run its course and gathering as much information as possible.”

We’re going to support him. We’re going to do the best that we can. But he’s got some things he’s got to take care of. The legal process has some things that have to be processed and we’ll go from there, but we’re a family and we work through things together.”
