To My Friend Rose

Thank you for being my friend. It meant more to me than you’ll ever know. You were one of the first people I met when I first came to Carolina Beach, a ray of sunshine. It was always the simplest things that made you happy, which did not take much. Never did I see you frown, but always smiled.  I will always remember our lunches together on the boardwalk eating tacos, something we did regularly. We had some great times laughing, sharing stories, and just hanging out. I will especially remember all the car rides to church with you and Spiegel. It always amazed me how you were always willing to give to others, even when you had so little. The love you had was never ending. But I think my fondest memory of you will always be the joy you had singing, dancing, and playing the tambourine at church. You had a love for Jesus, a childlike faith, something very rare, and it touched my heart. It’s the simplest things in life that makes a person feel loved, and you gave me that. Until we meet again my friend, keep dancing for Jesus, in your own special way.
