    I remember Rose always telling me what good girls we were and trying to give me good advice about stuff I was going through when I was younger. We always enjoyed pasta days at her Mom’s house as we all sat around and ate good food, laughed and talked together. Precious memories. God bless her and give her peace. In Jesus name, Amen

    I was greatly saddened to read of the loss of Rose. She was one of the sweetest and kindest of our classmates. She and John seemed like the perfect match. Rest in peace, my friend.

    Many fond memories of Rose when I was in High School. Whenever I got a chance, I’d go to the principle’s office to “work” for Rose. I used to stop and visit her when she transferred to Perry. What a lovely, sweet and kind soul! Sending thoughts of Peace and Comfort to her family and those that knew her.
