  1. Dear Family of Rose:
    I am the daughter of Lloyd and Rebecca Dyer of Asheville, and wanted to send heartfelt sympathy to all of the family. I am sorry I didn’t get to know Rose, she must have been an awesome lady! The family pictures are beautiful and what love you shared. May God bless you during this time. Maybe we could meet some time soon ….I would love to get to know more of Dad’s family. Blessings and peace, Isaiah 40:31 Debbie Dyer Ford
