Two years already. Miss you so much Rose. Her smile lit up the room when she walked in and she made others happy with her crazy remarks. Sure do miss calling you and talking but I guess God needed you more than we did here on earth. I’m sure you and my dad are looking down on me and taking care of me from above. See you again someday and til then I have your pictures.
Miss you and love you.

Wow time sure does fly, I’m sure not everyone feels that way, I think of you nearly everyday I can hear your laughter I always tell my self your up their keeping my dad company and probably telling jokes and hitting on him aswell, along with patty probably singing karaoke being wild and crazy I know y’all are taking care of each other and I know you all are looking over me, crystal and the whole family. Every night I ask that you patty and my dad are being taken care of and staying out of trouble with big man I’m sure your his favorite you truly were the best and knew how to light up the room with your smile and laugh.... you also knew how to clear the room with your death stare if you messed with your baby girl. That was always the best to watch people get scared and then laugh at them when they were gone, I Remeber Lindsay and you and I all went to visit crystal in college the funniest part was when we had to drive back home and it started pouring cats and dogs and your freaking windshield wiper flew straight off and literally went “zoom” so you had to drive with one working wiper the whole way home we made jokes about your “special” Jeep , that was the best I will forever miss you and forever be greatful that I had the opportunity to meet crystal and become part of the family no matter the distance I know we will always be family and I will always be their for her like you were for me when times were hard that was my promise I made to you when we were kids and I’m still keeping that promise I will always be their for her and watch out for her, I know you always worried about her, just know she is well taken care of and she is surrounded by so much family who are looking out for her
I love and miss you so much

I remember Rose when she was strong from the 1st day I met her . When she stumbled she wanted to fix it herself . I know how that works because I am stubborn too . When she said she loves someone family or friend she meant it . I hate that I am writing this letter because that means she is gone and I will miss her .
PS La Chapa loves you too Rose .

Ms Rose
It was truly a blessing to have met you and to have been apart of the family I am forever grateful for you and your family accepting me I have so many happy memories with you and crystal my favorite is the first time Crystal spent the night and you bought us all ice cream and I had to promise I would take care of crystal, I know it was hard to leave her but it showed how much you loved her and it definitely showed when you came back a couple hours later because she forgot to text you :) man was crystal embarrassed. I also will never forget you taking us to school in the morning with Nelly “hot in here” song going full blast with us singing and trying to dance in the car. I will forever miss hearing your contagious laugh and watching crystal cry from laughing so hard because your laugh was that contagious, and who could forget the epic sleepovers with pizza and movies and the “mom” talks last but not least I would say the funniest memory was when crystal ran to the bathroom and we both heard a thud then crystal telling mom! And you went to check and she somehow flew on the carpet and landed halfway into the bathtub we nearly peed laughing so hard and crystal still had no idea how that happend. I will carry those memories forever , you will forever be in my heart you were such an amazing soul and I take comfort knowing you are at peace now thank you for being there for me and crystal you were the best and will forever be loved and missed
Love you “mom”

Rose would do almost anything to help a friend or someone that needed help. She was a True and Honest friend that is very hard to find. I miss her every day but she is at Peace with our Lord and no more suffering no more pain. We will see her again soon! Comfort for all the family. Love you, Gina
