Awe... Rose... you are the kindest, most gentle lady i knew.. your sweet voice and laughter will always be with me. I consider you one of the Golden girls that gathered at the top of the hill with the rest of them at aunty gen's house. We lost a very lovely native elder. It's harder and harder to watch as years pass to see all the most loved women and men go on before me... but i will see you again i know this in my heart. I will see all of you at the Happy Hunting Grounds with the Creator. Koselomol to the entire family... my heart is with you all. So very sorry for your loss. I will pray hard for you all.
