  1. I Knew Rose, I worked with her for many years and boy was she a spitfire and in complete possession of all her faculties. This makes no sense she would not have left anything cooking on the stove and left the house as the story suggests. I know police believe this was accidental but I and a few of her family members do not agree that this is what happened. I mourn the loss of this amazing woman still to this day. she will always be loved and missed
