Sincere condolence to Ron, Sarah, John and families in the loss of a wife, mother and grandmother. May Rosemary R.I.P. ❤️ Wayne and Doreen.
Sisters are very special people and none more so than Rosemary. My eldest sister, a constant in my life. The pain of her loss is hard to bear. We managed to maintain our bond even living miles apart. Rather than dwell on the loss I prefer to look at the memories – the whacky childhood imaginary games, where Rosemary always got the best part (prerogative of being the eldest), the fun and shared joy of holidays in Canada and Scotland with Ron and the kids and her special visit to New Zealand with Ron for my 50th. Rosemary was full of life and generosity of spirit. I’ll miss her sorely but there will always be a special place in my heart for my big sis. Gone but certainly not forgotten.
Across the miles, across the sea
You were always dear to me
To a woman of strength, a woman of courage
A few short words convey my message
The tears I shed will soon subside
But in my heart you will reside
"To live in the hearts of those you love is not to die"
I remember that saying when thinking of those who have passed away. I found a photograph recently that I was holding Rosemary as a new born sitting in the garden down by the Tay bridge. We knew each other mostly as children in the school holidays, great fun every year.
I was heartbroken to read of Rosemary's passing. Rosemary was the caregiver to my two children: Mitchell and Jessica. She cared for them like they were her own, and we all adored her. Rosemary played such an important role in my children's lives and I am so grateful for the love she gave them. Sarah was our papergirl and I was always so impressed with her. When I found out her mother was a caregiver, I knew I had to get my son in somehow. Anyone who raised a child like Sarah, knew what she was doing. Meeting John and Ron only reinforced my decision. What a terrific family!. To all of you, I am so sorry for your loss! Rosemary was an extraordinary person. I think of her often and thank God that she helped me raise my children. She will always have a special place in our hearts.
