    Rose and I met at the 'Journey through the Bible study' three years ago at St. Bede. The first thing I notice about Rose coming into the room was that she was always smiling and talking to the one seated next to her, but it wasn't just visiting but caring about others near her and just walking pass. I experienced that care last April when I needed to go to Riverside in Newport News for surgery. You see, my childen live many places, one not being Williamsburg. Rose automatically offered to take me to the hospital and whatever else she was able to do. The children did come out, but the care and concern she gave was very special to me. On Tuesday mornings, she would be volunteering at St. Bede-Moore Hall at the desk, always with a hello and a kind word. It is thankful that I am to have been Rose's friend in Christ. In Rose, God's Love shone through. God Bless You Rose!

    Rose, it was a pleasure working with you at Books-A-Million so many years ago, and it was a pleasure to know such a wonderful person as you. I am so sorry that you had to leave this world so soon. God Bless.

    to the Bornschein family, My deepest condolences to all of you. I considered your Mom and your whole family as my second family while growing up. I wish I could have seen her one last time to say goodbye and thanks for all the great times. She was a great person and the world is worse without her. I wish you all the best - it has been too long. Miss you guys. Sean VV
