Rose was a tough cookie. A pushover is not how I'd describe her. Though the simple pleasures in life brought her great joy, like spending time in the kitchen cooking delicious meals for her family.
I learned some incredible lessons from her about patience, strength and respect.
She will continue to live in my thoughts and heart. That is her legacy.
Rest in peace Mom. I always have, and will always love you.
Be sure to blow me a kiss now and then!
