Beautiful Rose, we always looked forward to seeing her, listening to her wild stories and hearing her laugh. I will always cherish our memories of the many family visits, growing up together, being mischievous, riding bikes and just having so much fun! When you were with her you could feel the unconditional love and positivity she radiates. Rose was always smiling! We are so blessed to have shared so many wonderful times. We will miss her so much. Until we are together again cousin, Rest In Peace.

Rose was the rainbow in our lives after a hard day. Her smile made everything okay. We knew she loved us unconditionally, no matter what. Nobody understands the reason why we meet in this life’s journey. God puts us together to be forever in our hearts. We will miss her greatly. But we know she is telling God all her stories and making him laugh and smile like she did to us. Love and miss you, Rose.

To our dearest Cousin Rose,

As much as it pains us all to lose you, we are comforted in knowing how much your beautiful soul positively impacted all those that crossed your path. From family to friends and customers, you’ve made a positive difference in our lives that we could never forget. Your stories and guidance will always resonate with us as we remember your spirit and friendship. As we take this time to reflect, I believe many can agree that they have never heard Rose speak ill or negative which is a reminder that she was full of love and encouragement- a truly beautiful and genuine soul.
Our hearts go out to Frank and the boys for this tragic loss but know that they are not alone, they will continue to benefit from your everlasting impact and spirit. In Gods name, may you Rest In Peace.

Until we meet again,
We love and miss you dearly.

Rose,
Thank you for always being the loving, endearing, and kind-hearted individual you are. I am so thankful for your presence in my life for the past 9 years. You have been like a mother to me. You have shown me such a special kind of love through your interactions with family and your 3 boys. You are such a huge part in this family and you will always be apart of our growing lives. Although I will continue to cry and grieve, I know you’re always with us. I love you and will miss you so much everyday.

Rose to me will always be the essence of the excellent hairdresser -- meaning she was MORE than a hairdresser to her customers. She was a source of comfort, of confidence, humor, and understanding from the time my daughter Catherine and I were first blessed to sit down in her chair in 2005 until our last visit with her last fall. Then my sister Lana came from Fort Worth to get her excellent touch as a hairdresser but just as much the joy of talking with her about our loves, our losses, our hopes and fears. My sister Lori followed so we were a family affair for Rose! Truth be told -- when we sit down in other hairdressers' chairs, they will always be derivative of Rose -- she was the gold standard in hairdressing but more importantly in friendship. Rest now, dear Rose, knowing we will never forget you and -- though we'll miss you dearly -- we know your beautiful spirit has found a place that matches your boundless beauty and love for all time. Love, Lisa Sellers, Catherine, Lana, & Lori

This beautiful woman you see before you is the most caring and loving person I have ever met in life. She means the world to me, her love was something beyond compare. As her nephew, I experienced bundles and bundles of her love and memories that I thank god for. I am glad to say that she is like a mother to me. To her there was no boundaries or limit, you could tell her everything and anything and she would not judge you ever. My mother loved me as her own, she made me feel like I mattered. She showed me the love and compassion as a teenager needed , like the mother I never had. There wasn’t a thing in the world she wouldn’t do for me or anyone. I’ll miss and cherish her calling me her “Baby Robert”. She told me no matter how old I got I will always be her Baby Robert, And that will always and forever be in my heart . I love you mom and we’ll be missing you so so much but I know you are in a much better place. You will be one of our new guardian angels watching over us with my little Brother Gellito and Grandpa Rogelio. WE WILL ONLY PART FOR SOME TIME AND WILL FOREVER MEET AGAIN 😘🥰😍 LOVE YOU MOM❤️

I will always remember Rose with her big eyes and a beautiful smile. She was always full of life and energy. She spoke about her family and was a good listener as she styled my hair. She was very talented at her job. One story she told me stayed with me. She shared how she struggled to read as a little girl until the time an old woman arrived at her house and asked if she could come in to read to her from a bible she held in her hands. Rose let her in and this is how she began to read. I told her" Rose you were visited by an Angel!" She was not sure until that moment and we both had teary eyes. so it seems she was destined to be one of god's chosen people and now she will be praying for her friends and family and waiting for her loved ones to join her when the hord calls. Thank you Lord for such a beautiful soul! Until we meet again Rose, I will continue to tell your story to others so that they also will be blessed by your encounter with an angel.

Rose,

I remember you always talking about your boys while you dyed and cut my hair. I was in admiration when you spoke about your sons’ accomplishments and your goals for their future.

Your physical presence will be sorely missed but there is no doubt your spirt will surround us all, especially your family.

Much love, P. Mae Garza
