    Ms. Rose was a dear coworker and I am saddened to hear of her departing her shell. Her spirit lives on so I know one day we will meet again. My condolences to her family and friends that you may grieve with happy memories as much as you can for God has called his child to be with him and she has earned her wings to be our angel on earth. Sleep peacefully Ms. Rose forever missed. Now I have to find someone else to do my runs lol

    My condolences to the family. I never met Ms. Rose but had the pleasure of meeting her son Otis and speaking to her often on the pjj hi one and through Facebook communication. Ms. Rose was always pleasant with an an encouraging word and great recipe to share. Due to living hundreds of miles away, I never met Ms. Rosa but she treated me just like family. Will definitely be missed.- Yvonne Smirh
