    I just found out about this and wanted to pass along my condolences. Rose was my very first riding instructor – fuelling a passion that continues to this day. I remember Rose as being a patient, positive, and enthusiastic coach who cared deeply for her students. I have so many amazing memories of lessons on Badger, Sunny, Copper, and Archie and how much Rose taught and inspired me. My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time.

    Hello Everyone:

    June was a very sad month for my family and I, my youngest sister Rose passed away.

    My sister loved people and above all family. She never liked to miss a family event and supported us all, whenever she could.

    Some of you will remember her childhood name was Rosey. It was the perfect name for her, she was “Rosey”, happy with a ready smile which lifted people’s spirits who met her. Rosey made friends easily. Who wouldn’t want to be around such a beautiful child who was always smiling?

    We always seemed to be moving as kids and Rosey adopted the common accent wherever she was. Welsh accent, Scottish, whatever it might be. Rose had a Scottish teacher in the Bahamas so she spoke with a Scot accent. When I came to live in Canada, her Welsh and English accents had vanished and she spoke with such a strong Canadian accent, you would never have known she had been born in England.

    Rose’s love of horses began when she learned to ride ponies in the Cardiff area of South Wales, UK. She was hooked, & that became her passion in life.

    Rose was a proud grandmother to 3 children. Her son Charley was so much like her, in the way he’s smiling and friendly and decent to people.

    Rosey loved music, whether it was Beethoven, Beatles or hard rock, she loved it all. I believe her first celebrity crush was with Donny Osmond, followed by David Cassidy and then a big leap to Alice Cooper.

    Whenever I think of Rose I see her with that natural, ready Rosey smile. One day, when we’re not still sad over her loss, we will be able to remember her smile and smile along with her.

    Love you and will miss you Rose! Your brother David X
