On the last day that Rose was home we went swimming in the lake.
We took a long boat ride upriver.
We grilled barbecued ribs and onions.
We tried to fit a whole summer into that last day.
We wanted her to remember home and fun and love
while she was away from us at school.
I am missing my Rose today, but I am super proud of her.
Someday she will be trained to help others during disasters.
She knows all about fear and emergencies.
Who better to be on the front lines than my Rose?
