A rose by any other name couldn’t be more beautiful. She was a very special lady who always had encouraging words to give. Try to remember the little things— the shared smiles, the warm hugs, the family gatherings and the cherished memories. May these special memories help to be your source of strength today and in all your tomorrows.

Remembering my true friend and sister in Christ, Rose Carter....

Rosie (as I called her), was so very, very special to me. All the memories and stories I would like to write down would take a book!
Words cannot describe what I am feeling right now. 😢 Tears fall as I write this to you all. Very few people have influenced my life the way she did. My memories of her will forever be cherished as they are etched on my heart! 💞

She was a beautiful soul and a wonderful friend; I will miss her dearly. My heart is broken right now,💔 but we know that we will see her again on that beautiful day when God shall come for his people and we shall meet in the sky with no more sadness, sorrow or pain.

My deepest and sincere condolences to the family for this great loss. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you for comfort and peace in knowing she is out of her discomfort and pain. May you find peace in the warmth of love and friendship that surrounds you at this very difficult time...

💞Lee Lee...

1st Corinthians 15:50-55
*50* Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
*51* Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
*52* In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
*53* For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
*54* So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
*55* O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

Rose was one of my best military friends. She was always there when needed and she also had a wonderful wonderful family who was always there for her. Rose will be missed by many and I will miss her dearly. May the Lord bless her for all she has done for all of her friends and family. God bless you Rose.

Love, Shirley, Angela and Gina Griffin

Condolences to the family & friends of Rose. I met Rose in the early days of becoming pastor of the EEBC, Brooklyn, NY. She had just graduated from College & returned to her Church to worship & serve with the youth. Her love for the Lord was evident in her faithful commitment. May her family & friends be encouraged in the Lord.

Dear Aunt Rose,

Such a humble, kind and infectious being. You are and will forever be a sweetheart. Your love for the family was insurmountable. I am so thankful we have great memories of being with you and each other; especially from our most recent family reunion.

I can't help but to laugh during my last visit to check in on you; my “golden girls" as I would call (Aunt Rose and Aunt Audrey). Aunt Rose you had company all day and when I arrived about 8pm or so; Aunt Audrey let me in; I sat and talked with you girls for about 5 minutes before you realized who I was (LOL). You never saw me in makeup (smile) so Aunt Audrey reconfirmed my identity; “Jackie who?” – “Michelle's Jackie?” Yes - I stated and we began to laugh 😂😂.

Thank you Aunt Rose - it was something in you which pushed something in me to gather OUR family together! And I am so glad WE made it happen!

Although, you would say my gestures were sweet of me; I will humbly decline, as you are the epitome of SWEET.

You’ve taken your rest - you've fought a good fight. Well done!

With Love always

Jackie, that’s right – Michelle’s Jackie 😇

My sincere condolences to the beautiful and loving family of "Miss Rose".
Our beautiful Rose has been chosen now to join the heavenly garden and be in the presence of the Lord forever.
We who are left behind, are poorer for it, yet, we are richer in that God saw fit to grace our lives with her beautiful presence, smile, warmth and profound wisdom.
May you be comforted by the God of all Comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3-5), and may your tears, in time, give way to smiles as sweet memories of her prevail.
God bless and keep you all.
Lovingly submitted.
Sister Cheryl.

I have so many favorite memories of Auntie. One that stands out was every Friday for a few years Auntie and my mom Audrey would take my brother and I, cousin Uniqua and Kaire out to eat at Friendlys and other spots. I would look forward to Friday from Monday.

Another memory I have of Auntie is she would always give me sweets and cream soda when I would come over. My sweet tooth was always met in her home.

Another memory I have is sleeping over her place when my parents went out of town. My brother and I would stay up all night watching movies and talking and felt at home away from home.

I cannot forget the times Auntie would make lasagna for all the family. Everyone would come over on a Friday or Saturday and break bread together. It was a time to not just eat but see one another all in one setting.

And when Auntie moved to Florida I would love to visit the sunny state and just enjoy a time to relax. Her home was alwsys a home away from home. I enjoyed our many conversations and inspirational words. And if you wanted to learn more about the family she had all the goods.

Heaven has truly gained another angel.

Love Kenan
