    So sad to hear of Rose’s passing. Always loved talking with her, while I was at work. Loved to hear of her stories and she was always concerned for my family also.
    It was so cute the way she forward to Jimmy’s visit. She always called him, ‘her boyfriend’!
    Our prayers and thoughts are with the family and Rose.
    It was a pleasure to know Rose and call her a friend.
