Rose is really going to be missed. She was Loved by so many people. I remember spending many days at her house with Rosemary in my younger years. The first time I ate Chinese food was at her house.
I learned the proper way to fold towels, lol, because chores had to be done before we could go anywhere.
First time I played bingo was with her and Rosemary, mostly with her watching my cards along with her many cards. She was a very talented player. I always thought she was a very classy lady that raised some very beautiful daughters.
