    I was blessed to meet Rose as she was my best friend’s grandmother. Renee would light just up talking about her grandma. She loved her with a depth not often seen and of course, Rose loved her the same way. As soon as Renee got back to Buffalo, her first stop was always her grandma’s. She didn’t go out of obligation, she went because she wanted to be around her more than anything. In the times I was privileged enough to be around Rose, I was filled with a warmth that I never really felt before. She welcomed me as an extension of Renee. The world has lost an amazing being, but I know she was at peace. She lived an incredible life and spread joy to whoever was fortunate to meet her.
