Please help identify my grandfathers rose.

MilesDevin(7a)April 30, 2014

This rose in particular has much sentimental value to me. My grandfather passed away a year ago, May 18th. This rose bush grew next to his home in rural Oklahoma ever since I can remember. It even grew in partial shade! Anyways, it seems to be a once bloomer. Thankfully, I managed to successfully transplant it to our home. It is quite fragrant with small, old garden, blooms. The buds are interesting, when some start to open, they show a white tinge, while others show a definite pink before opening. I'll include more photos below! Thank you for your help!

It's really lovely! I wish I could give you some idea what it might be. I think you should repost this over on the Antique Rose forum. There are more people over there that might know what it is.
