Second ORR I need help identifying

I the last post I mentioned that may years ago I bought many ORR from mostly Heirloom Roses and Rogue Valley Rose Nursery. Some did not do well so I had to put them back in pots to let them grow up. I still have several that I need identifying. I now have two that are blooming so it is the best time to get help with identification. This rose has a long thin arching cane with one other shoot coming off the bottom of this cane. The leaves are a nice medium green with mostly five leaves and there are buds starting on all the leaves. The flowers are a f uniform medium pink at the end of the main cane with several other buds that have not opened. This looks a lot like Dainty Bess but I have never had a Dainty Bess, so I am pretty confused. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Are the stamens in the center or red or purplish color? If so my guess is Dainty Bess.

Looks like my Dainty Bess. Could it have been a mystery rose that accompanied a rose order from one of the nurseries? My DAinty Bess was a mystery rose.

At first I thought it looked like a Dainty Bess then realized it look very much like my other large Sparrieshoop. I think I just forgot that I had ordered another one years ago and these bands take so long to grow up. So although I would love Dainty Bess, and think I will order one.. I do love my Sparrieshoop also. A picture below of my older Sparrieshoop. thanks everyone for taking a look. Sometime I just can't remember all the roses I have.
