Rose graduated from Wheatland High School and went off to Fargo where she attended Interstate Business school in Fargo for accounting.

Message: Jane..I am from Canada and met your mom 20 years ago while RV in in Arizona, and we kept in touch.  I just received your moms memory card in the mail, that George sent.  I tried calling and got a message machine at their home yesterday and today, the phone is not accepting calls.  I was so shocked about your mom Rose and cried all afternoon.  When you have a moment could you send me an e-mail on what happened. .I talked to her awhile ago and she mentioned carpole tunnel in her hand.  Also could you send George's cell phone number...as I just had your moms.  My prayers and Hugs go out to you, George and all the family.  Roses friend...Dale
