Rose was my very best and dearest friend. She lived across the street from me on Sheller Ave. in Dayton. We would talk and laughed about life over the phone without fail once a week when I lived in Dayton. We continued to do so for more than 12 years after my husband and I moved to Colorado to be near my son and daughter's families. We talked last several month ago before she fell. I would often have lunch with her when she moved to Centerville, Ohio. I also remember taking her to stores to help buy clothes. I will miss her deeply.
