I would like to express my deepest and heartfelt condolences to the family of Rose Rushing. I am truly sorry for the lost
that your family is feeling. When ever we lose such a caring and loving person, it is one of the hardest experience that
any of us can go thru. And because of that my thoughts and prayers are with your family. Take comfort in knowing
that God never intent for us to death with sickness or death. But have assure in the wonderful promise that God holds
out to us. He promise each of us that very soon he is going to reunite us back with all those loved ones that we have
lost. (John 5:28,29) Until that time, cherish all the wonderful memories that you have of Mrs. Rose. These precious
memories will console the family in the days ahead.

I am very sorry to learn of Rose Ann's death. She was my first girl friend. Her family lived in an apartment in Mrs. J.H.
Smith and son, Henry's home. Her husband had passed away, the Rev. J.H.Smith. Mrs. J. H. Smith was my nanny. She
was known as "Maw" Smith. I was born in her home on October 31, 1937. Dr. Arrington was in attendance. I
socialized with Rose Ann while the family lived there. My mother and father C.L. Briscoe owned and operated the
Briscoe Cafe in Vaiden. I lived with "Maw" Smith until my family moved to Jackson,where I entered the first grade.
One year later my family moved to Winona and we re-united with "Maw" Smith and Henry.
My uncle Howard Briscoe told me that Rose Ann was still in the area and had a son that was a doctor. I never made
contact with her. My family moved to Moss Point, MS. in 1952. I have been in that area ever since.
