    Prayers, Love and Thoughts are lifted for Rose's family. All roses symbolize God's love at work in the world. Our Rose (Minor) certainly passed on to others her love of live, friendship and religion. She will be missed by many but is now a sweet flower of all the angels. I have been blessed to have know her and to share our youthful friendship together.

    In what seems like a lifetime ago as a teenager in Williamsburg I had the privilege of spending time with Sweetie and Mick. I will always remember those times. The parties the drag races hanging out at Stouts Citgo the Toano Women's Club Epocys house and the Road Trip to Nags Head. Like Sweetie those are now memories but like Sweetie they will forever be in my thoughts and in my heart never to be forgotten!. Rest In Peace old friend.
