I am so saddened to see this. Rose was always the one I knew I could go to at JFS. She certainly always made me feel welcomed and loved.

Bill and Cheryl, I was so sad to see the news of Rose's passing this evening. She was quite a gal. I have a lot of memories of all of us working together at ACDJFS. I know it's hard to say goodbye, but I hope you realize you gave her so much as you cared ABOUT her and FOR her. I pray for your comfort and peace. Sincerely, Cheryl Martin
