It’s difficult to know how to write this blog. We’ve played it over in our minds for weeks now, but until you get to it, you don’t know how to craft the words to say what you want it to say. So, cutting straight to the chase, our beautiful, feisty, annoying, brilliant Rosie died this morning.
She’d give you details, all the gory ones. And would probably provide a picture too. Actually, although she was distressed to begin with, it ended quickly and peacefully. And we’re not shying away from the details to be sensitive. She was still telling the doctors and nurses what to do an hour before she died. There are no fine last words to report – not sure that anyone does really. But the last two people she spoke about were Calum and Sylvie. She did set Sylvie a harsh task, which is to watch Red or Black for her, which Sylvie will do with pride.
We’ll let you know funeral details, so keep reading the blog. And as Rosie renewed the TKOE domain name for two years only yesterday afternoon, it looks like TKOE will run for a bit yet. We’ve got money to donate anyway and stock which we need to raise money from.
Team Kilburn (the inner group) are sad beyond words today. But we wanted to thank the bigger Team Kilburn for the help, wise words and sheer belief you have given Rosie (and us) over the past two years.
Jo, Chris, Cal and Sylvie
