3n Gribute
We just have to pause a moment, close our eyes, and we can still see the
sparkle in Roie's eyes and her irresistible smile. If we reflect just a
moment longer, we can even hear the twinkle of her voice and laughter
and feel the warm and genuine glow of her friendship.
Yes, her untimely passing will leave a void in many of our lives, especial-
ly those closest to her. We cannot change, nor should we question, what
has happened but we can and must control how this tragedy affects us
by imitating some of her qualities in our own lives.
We must remember that it is not how long we live that counts, but how
beautifully we live that matters. In her own quiet but firm way, Rosie's
contributions and donation to life and to all of those who she touched
with her friendship are immeasurable.
Rosie held the key to self-fulfillment and happiness, something so many
go through life searching for, without realizing. She discovered and prac-
ticed that one should live life to the fullest, not waste energy on regrets;,
take the time to have fun, set your goals high and attack them with de-
termination, yet never fail to extend a helping hand to those around you.
Rose was soft-spoken, yet strong in character and with steadfast atti-
tudes that, sprinkled with kindness and gentleness, made her so very
"special."
Well remember her laughter and that captivating smile that will always
be like a fresh burst of golden sunshine. Rosie, for those of us that per-
haps did not take the time to tell you, know that each one of us will
always be grateful for the many treasured memories that will forever en-
rich our lives because of you!

OUR TRIBUTE TO ROSIE
We had a pearl, Rose of course,
A Jewel that was ous!n
She was the fruit of hope, the gem of our souls
Then something flashed ... and she was no more.

Rosie, it doesn't seem real, your going away
You were someone so very beautiful and special
But if we could,
We would sing to you the joys of loving
and, probably shed a silent tear
over the pain of losing you
But, always remember, the sun will rise
on the sunset of our love for you, Rosie!

Lovingly, Your friends at Chase
