    How do you begin to look back on somebody who had such an impact on myself, as well as countless other people? Lisa is correct, they definitely broke the mold with the Rosebud. I have had the distinct pleasure and honor to have been friends with Rose for about 35 years. We definitely had our share of ups and downs, but laughter and respect was something that was always a common thread. Rose was always funny, but more importantly to me, someone who would listen to fools such as myself. She never judged me at all, but always offered her support and love. She probably will be one of my closest friends in my lifetime, as I let very few people into my sphere. As sad as it is that she is no longer with us, you can’t help but smile at all of the great times she provided to all of us. I can only hope that Lisa, and the entire family know how much she loved all of you, and how happy I have been sharing a part of your lives with you. Jim, you were such an important part of her life too-she truly was a better woman because of you. I ask that you all carry on her happy spirit, no, that would be CRAZY spirit! This world needs so much more laughter…and I’m sure she is cracking up Elvis right now. God Bless you all and the Rosebud
