I had the pleasure of caring for Miss Rose at SDRC. She was so kind and sweet. Early in the mornings I would sit with her and we’d talk about our children and our pets. From these talks I know she loved her family dearly. Prayers to the family. I know Rose is happy in heaven with her husband.

Rose was my mom’s dearest cousin and childhood friend. I have so many memories of her and Peach, and was told many stories by my mom about things they did together as children. Rose was so talented, she drew and painted many craft items. Once Rose took me to hear the Richmond symphony with her, an experience I’ll never forget. Her kindness and sweet, soft way of dealing with others will never be forgotten.
