Goodbye to a good friend

This photo was taken when I visited Rose in hospital a few weeks ago.

It is with great sadness that I tell you that our friend Rose Marshall died early this morning. Rose was a much loved admin on our forum and a friend to thousands. We will miss her. Rest in peace, Rose.

  11. Ah, Rose. I pray she's resting in the arms of God tonight. I pray comfort for her family and loved ones. May God bless you, Rhonda, for being such a wonderful friend to her. I am sure your visits and caring meant a lot. It is the simple contacts in life that touch the souls of so many; a card, a phone call, a visit, just to let someone know you care. Once again, the simple life is best.

  67. Rose was so special to me. I live in the states. She used to read my blog. When my daughter was born six years ago (yesterday), Rose knitted a little pair of booties and sweater and mailed them to me, along with a special book for my son. She was lovely. I knew she was battling cancer, but hadn't heard how she was doing in some time.

    My heart is broken.
