Aunt Rose, I will always remember staying with you for my last 18 months of high school in Quincy. My parents moved to Missouri and you opened up your home to me so I (Todd) could finish high school in Quincy. Your love and kindness will never be forgotten. I am glad I got to say that to you one more time on one of my last visits to Quincy. My wife Julie has found memories of you as well. Rose was also a Great Aunt to our son Chad and daughter Laura. Rose was also a Great Great Aunt to our granddaughter (Whitley) and grandson (Chase). Thank you Rose for making a difference in my life and many others. We will see you in heaven. Love always, Todd and Julie Howlett

Rose always sat right in front. Of me in Sunday school, I will miss seeing her there. I know Rose is rejoicing beyond imagination now I am sad but yet happy for her May her family find the peace with God as Rose did
