A rose by any other name still smells as sweet. The same can be said of the innate beauty distinctively you. Your sweet care nature always shines through. Beauty personified inside and out. You are our rose adding the beauty to our lives.
Gone but never forgotten our mother, grandmother, friend, mentor, and a son's first love.
