There are few experiences more difficult than losing a loved one in death; no doubt Mr. Rose will be sadly missed by all who knew him. May you find comfort in knowing death was not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed. His word is clear, “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces”. (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4)
Further, Jesus spoke of the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), performed resurrections and was himself resurrected by his Father. All such miraculous events took place on earth, giving us a glimpse of what is to come! (Acts 24:15)
Until his promises are fulfilled, may Jehovah God continue to bless your family, as you cherish the many fond memories of Mr. Rose in the days ahead.....

My heart hurts for you and your family in this painful loss. I can always remember how you and Mindy would tell some story about "Bobby" and laugh so hard..Never met this young man but I felt I had.
The loss of a child is the worse but I know your spirit. I believe you can be the strong one for all. I miss you and I hope you know God's Light was shining on Bobby and he knew you knew your strength and would get through this. You knew His light was much brighter and he needed him to come Home. May your days be full of all your wonderful memories and that I am praying for you and the family(Mindy)
