Rose’s favorite song was a Bing Crosby song that her late husband, Anthony always sung to her:

THE ONE ROSE (THAT’S LEFT IN MY HEART)

As recorded by BING CROSBY:

Your as sweet as the red rose in June, dear
I love you, adore you, I do
Each night through loveland we’d wander, sweetheart
Telling love stories anew

Out of a blue sky a dark cloud came rolling
Breaking my heart in two
Don’t leave me alone, I love only you
You’re the one rose that’s left in my heart

(Orchestral interlude)

Your as sweet as the red rose in June, dear
I love you, adore you, I do
Each night through loveland we’d wander, sweetheart
Telling love stories anew

Out of a blue sky a dark cloud came rolling
Breaking my heart in two
Don’t leave me alone, I love only you
You’re the one rose that’s left in my heart
