Let the memory of Rose be with us forever

Rose came into my life when I was 4 years old.  She has been my mother for 58 years, grandmother to my children, and great-grandmother to their children.  I will forever miss the wonderful woman that she was, and all that she did for me.

"Sorry for your family loss. I did not know Rose, met her only once. My daughter always spoke of her and with Tyra's connection to your family I am sure she was a wonderful part of your life and family. Over 58 years I am sure she added much love and positive memories for you, your family and all who knew her."

"Rose will be missed by so many! I always loved to get my big hug from Rose every time I came or went from the Morton household! She was just one of those people you instantly love! Her smile always made me smile, even when things weren't going my way. Love you, Rose!"

"I have a ton of memories of Rose but one that stands out is when I would stay the night with Megan and Colleen one thing that Rose always said before we left the house was "did you bing down the wash". Yes I was included in that even though I didn't live there we always had to have the "wash" brought down before we could leave:-) She is definitely going to be missed by many! Love you Rose!"

"I have so many precious memories of Ms Rose! What an incredible and nurturing woman. . . . .she loved every child and the child inside of everyone who happened by the house.  And every time I see the girls, I see a little bit of Rose. Rest in peace, Ms Rose! I'll see you soon."
