Governor John Bel Edwards and First Lady Donna Edwards will preside over the dedication of the renaming of the rose garden at the Louisiana Governor’s Mansion in honor and memory of the late Rose Landry Long Thursday, June 1 at 5:30 pm at 1001 Capital Access Road in Baton Rouge.
Rose passed away on April 30, 2017 after an 11-month battle with brain cancer. She was an inspiration to all.
God gave her peace, joy, and strength, and she shared that with others whenever she could. She could often be found seeking out and praying with strangers in cancer treatment waiting rooms. Even in her sickness, Rose always lit up the room and her joy and strength exuded, even when all she could do was smile and say, “Thank you.”
