My heart is heavy and my spirit broken to know that my great beloved friend's body has departed us on this earth, however; that precious and gracious soul left that aching body once the last breath was taken and we know that God said it was time to return home His Beloved Son! Now we know he no longer aches in pain and sadness but is rejoicing in heaven with the Angels. You are truly missed and will always be remembered as "a great, wonderful, caring man" as well as a wonderful friend! RIP My Friend!

My condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. When our loved ones die it pains our hearts. Our loving God Jehovah is aware of this and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 68:20 says; The true God is for us a God who saves; And Jehovah the Sovereign Lord provides escape from death. Also 1 Peter 5:7 says : While you throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. May these scriptures help you to cope during this sad time.

Dad was a good and loving person/father-in-law. Afterwards, in an otherwise hopeless situation, "Papa Rose" (as my sons called him), stepped in and did his best for my 2 sons -- his grandsons James Solomon Rose, IV and Jamar Manasseh Rose in ways I'm sure the guys will never forget. May the Peace and Comfort of Almighty God uphold the Rose family as you each mourn. I understand the tight hurt that grabs and holds on to hearts at the loss of one so dear.
