Sending my condolences to the entire family. Rose was a great lady. So quiet and sincere. She had a gentle smile, too. So very sorry to learn she has passed.

I am going to miss my dear friend but I'm grateful for the many years of friendship! Rose was there for my wedding, even hosting a bridal shower, the birth of my daughter, her wedding and even remembering my grand-daughters. We had wonderful times and she was also there during sad times and when I was going the wrong way. She advised me and helped me make better decisions. Rest in peace with your Savior, who welcomed you Home, dear friend!
