    I haven’t seen Rose in a number of years. I grew up in the house next door to Owings Methodist Church. When Rose married, she dressed at our house. They hid their car in our garage!
    I remember visiting her mother in the two story house with the steps outside to the second level.
    I would have been at the service this morning if I had known about it. My husband, David, and I send our condolences.
