The Roses

Midler, B., & Rothchild, P. A. (1986). The rose The original soundtrack recording. [S.l.]: Atlantic.

I'm kind of on a Bette Midler kick:

I always get a little teary eyed when I hear that song. It makes me think of my two favorite roses: my aunt Rosie and my great grandmother Rose Siciliano. Great Grandma lived to the ripe old age of 101. Aunt Rosie was not as fortunate. She was killed by a stoned teenage driver only three months after our cousin Joe was murdered in the World Trade Center.

Aunt Rosie, Me, Mom (2000).
