I didn't know Miss Rose well, but when I would go walk at SPAR and she was there I would talk to her as we would walk. I didn't know much about her, but we would talk about church and just general things. She had such a sweet spirit. I often told her she was my inspiration to keep walking especially when I learned of her age. I had been out of town and was just reading the paper when I saw where she passed . I just wanted to share how much of an impression she made on me and I hardly knew her so I can only imagine what she did for her family. I will think of her every time I go to SPAR to walk. I know how much you all will miss her. Blessings to all of you! Jana Ashworth
