Mrs Rose was a charm! Beautiful lady with a beautiful soul who loved her family. I was fortunate enough to know her through my friendship with Mary. Many dance competitions for Abbey allowed me to visit with Mrs Rose, along with a couple of trips to the casino. It was an honor to know her and some of her family. May each of you feel God’s hand on your shoulder as you make this difficult transition of letting go! My thoughts and prayers for all. She is now smiling down on each of you with pride! Thank you for sharing her with myself and Leslie.
