Dear Rosie, You will always have a special place in my heart. You were a wonderful friend for so many years. We went through life's ups and downs together and had so many good times. God blessed me when he brought you into my life so many years ago. I wish you could have stayed longer as we had many more songs to sing. The sudden way you left this world is so devastating. Knowing that I will never see or speak to you again is this life is something I can't comprehend right now. I do believe in the hereafter and believe your spirit has already begun to move on. Know that is consoling to me. I am hoping you will visit me in my dreams so I can move on knowing you are happy in your new life. We made so many memories of the years and when I think of all the fun times we had it brings a smile to my face and warms my heart. I will treasure the memories forever. Wherever you are know that you are loved and missed by many. Bless you today and always and may you find happiness in your eternal life until we meet again one day. Your forever friend, Pauline
