ONESARAFINA MIGHT'VE BEEN NAMED FOR THE ANGELS, but she'dalways known one day she'd end up in hell. Her mother had told her that ahundred times while she'd been growing up. She just never figured it wouldbe while she was still breathing. But here she was--broke, dumped, andgrief-stricken. It couldn't get any worse. Her fingers white and shaking, shereleased the yellow rose she held and let it fall onto Rosemary's casket. Itcame to rest on the polished poplar top, followed by many more rosesreleased by those around her. Yellow roses had been Rosemary's favorite.They match your hair, buttercup .
