    Rose I wanted to let you know that even though I only had a few moments over the last four years we have known each other those moments that we have had together have been great. I love how we shared your stories of traveling, of nursing, dating, kids, and your friend Elaine. I was always so fond of your stories admiring you more with each one. You are so strong and courageous so smart and so funny so loving. I wish we would have had more time to share but I am grateful for the time we did have. I know you are watching over your family and you are in no more pain. I love you Rose you are an amazing woman. To whomever had the chance in life to be around you was surely a blessed person. Love you always!
