I have just heard the news of Rose's passing and I'm devastated!!! Rose and I became friends in 1976 and over the last several years have talked on the phone and sent text messages. She was such a great person!!! I'm a better person because of Rose. We had planned to get together in the near future. My heart is broken for Quincy and the family. Rose was one of a kind!!! I will treasure the memories and photos I have of her. I'm so sorry for the loss of this Special lady!!!
