A Rose for Rosa...a holocaust survivor.

It was an honor and great pleasure to meet Rosa about four years ago in Arkansas where I live. She was so warm and genuine, and I've never forgotten those eyes that were streaming tears when we locked in a tight embrace. I'll never forget Rosa, have often thought of her and really would love to see her again.
