Re: Rose

Hi Rose
My mothers first name was Rose, but she never used it till my father died.
She used a Nickname, that her parents had given her I guess.
I fact, all her married life she used her husbands name, Mrs Wilbur
Sinclair. I asked her about it many times, untill she got tired of me asking
I guess and started using her own name.
My daughters second name is Rose.

Ken W Sinclair
