6 years on

12 Sep

I know, I know. Nothing on here for months. Truth be told, I’ve had to take a bit of a break to clear my head. New job, new challenges and time marching on meant I didn’t have the words. I had the inclination. But not the words. A kind of writers block, I guess.

I’m not going to give a catch up today. That’s for another day. But today is the 6 year anniversary. Seems so long ago, and so near. Thinking of the things she’s missed, wishing she was here. She would be so very proud of Cal and Sylv – as well as telling them off for the things they shouldn’t be doing; she’d would be impressed with the things her cousins and friends are doing; and she would no doubt be doing something wacky and brave herself.

As ever, we’ve had some lovely, powerful messages from so many people. It means so much that everyone is remembering Rosie. Remembering the life force she was and continues to be.

Remembering you today and every day, babe

Jo xx

    Special words and pictures for this most difficult of days. The one thing you never have to worry about is Rosie being forgotten.Her impact lives on in so many ways and she would be very proud of all of you for getting on with things even when you don’t feel like it. Hope the new challenges are going well, look forward to hearing more when the time is right. Love to you all. x

    We miss seeing that face, we miss her at the family parties, we miss her humour, we miss her wise words, we miss her qwerky dress sense, we miss her voice. We miss her. Ben and Maddie still talk about her and I am so thankful for the time they spent with her. The Rosie Force is still very strong in our home Xxx

    Remember Rosie all the time, how could we ever forget her, even those of us who never met her. She was a force to be reckoned with, driven, determined, dynamite.

    Rosie is definitely NOT forgotten!!1 It does not seem like 6 years since she died.

    When David died in 1999 it really felt like family and friends grieved for about 2 weeks – then life took over. He was spoken about frequently in our family. I had a male friend from school who lived abroad, who sent me a postcard every week for 1 year…. The English on the whole do not talk about death.

    Rosie’s legacy lives on and that is SO wonderful – BIG hugs and love to you all – Georgina xxxx

    I don’t think there’s anyone I worked with in 17 years at the BBC that I think of more often than Rosie. The way you enabled her to flourish and continue to celebrate your beautiful, feisty, annoying, brilliant Rosie is an ongoing inspiration. A privilege to have shared a little time with such an excellent family.

    Lovely to have you back on TKOE blog Jo πŸ˜‰
    And your pics are fab too. Thank you for sharing them with us πŸ™‚
    Life does march on but at the most unexpected of times, a little something reminds me of her smiling face. Like that ‘Yay’ card. Or a Thorntons shop. Or some weird and wonderful arty thing. The force of Rosie indeed πŸ™‚ wonderful x
