Rose lived her life for the Lord and her kindness and faith was inspiring. She always had a smile and her heart was as soft as her voice no matter what was going on in her life she never lost her faith and loving kindness towards others. She will be greatly missed by all that was blessed to know her but so joyfully welcomed by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
