As a child, I was always excited to see my Aunt Rose. Because of her, I was blessed to learn simple sign language at an early age. She always seemed excited to see me and my siblings, also. I admired her tenacity and independent personality, despite her challenges in life. She always held a special spot in my mother’s heart. May they enjoy eternity together with the angels.... Until we meet again.
