  • Been a friend of Rose for many years. I met her just as she moved to her home on Henderson hwy. She called me to change locks on her house and we developed a friendship. She would call on me from time to time for advice or help looking for a contractor or if I would help her with many small jobs around her house. She was very set in her ways and harder to move than a boulder but would listen to reason with me. She loved animals I helped her get Zoey and she would often give me 20$ to get my kitty's treats :). I'm just sorry I missed the service. When I tried to contact her and couldn't I feared the worse and left a message with family but never received a reply. Now I know rest peacefully my friend.
