    Thank you all for your kind words. My wife was truly a one of a kind person with a huge heart and everyone knew it. She was my whole world and will always be deeply loved and badly missed by many friends and family. We were married just short of 4 years and I can honestly say she was my first wife and my first and only true love. I love you and miss you so much honey I will be with you again! I noticed some old dear friends have commented here that I didn’t know, try to get in touch with me I have 3 plastic totes full of all her old childhood photos that I want to eventually scan and create a memorial dvd to give out to all the family and close friends. It will probably be a while before I can the pain is still too much but I will eventually. Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers. Joseph Rose

    I'm so sorry, to hear this. Andrea, was one of my best friends, many years ago, when she lived in Martinsville and attended MHS. I'd lost track of her through the years. Fly high Andrea, even when life got you down, you didn't lose your faith, in GOD. He pulled you through, many times. RIP, old friend, there are no struggles, in Heaven.
