Deepest sympathies to Jim, Daniel and family at this sad time. Rosaleen- a beautiful, kind, thoughtful and generous person.
— Anthony Mangan
I hadn't seen Rosaleen for a very, very long time. But Rosaleen is a very prominent part of my most treasured memory.

When Daniel and I started playschool together, Jim would collect us from playschool and call me a scallywag.

When we started primary school at The Ink Bottle, it was Rosaleen that collected us from school. Our bustop overlooked the rose garden at the botanic gardens. Every time I see a rose, I stop to smell it, and Rosaleen is there and her beautiful long hair. My hairstyle is long and has been all my adult life because when I picture her, we are at the bus stop, and her long hair blows in the wind behind her right shoulder. She looked beautiful.

I was so happy to hear from her just weeks ago.

Im sorry, Jim... and Daniel. Im so so very sorry for your loss.
— Susan Byrne.

So so sad Jim, Master Daniel & Family,
Our hearts ache for you. I remember the first time I met dear Rose. I joined auntie Olive for her bible study in Linsay Rd. A start of a wonderful journey began and continued many decades. Rose became like a daughter to auntie Olive. As her faith grew, so did her beautiful heart. Jehovah surely has her "hidden like a treasure" along with all his other treasures. Job14:13
Like Jehovah,we long to have Rose, our "treasure" back with us.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you her dear family.
— Ruth & Geoff Crowhurst

We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers at this very sad time.

Dear Jim & Daniel.

So very sad to hear that Rose is no longer with us.
I was only 19 when I first met Rose, but was immediately moved by her genuine, non judgemental, humble, love and concern for all.

Lieber Jim, lieber Daniel, ich bin eine Schwester aus Deutschland und habe durch meine liebe Tochter Astrid Maxwell von Eurem unsagbar großen und plötzlichen Verlust Eurer lieben Rose🌹und meiner lieben geistigen Schwester erfahren. Ich bin sehr traurig und ich denke an Euch, ich bete für Euch. Ich möchte Euch mein herzlichstes Mitgefühl ausdrücken. Wir freuen uns sehr, Eure liebe Rose schon bald gesund und jung in die Arme schließen zu können, wenn unser liebevoller Gott Jehova sie durch Jesus Christus hier auf einer paradiesischen Erde auferwecken wird! Ganz liebe, von Herzen kommende Grüsse von Eurer Schwester Helen aus Deutschland.
— Helen Bamberg
To especially Jim and Daniel & all the family,
We are all heartbroken and in shock to hear about the sudden and sad passing of Rose.
She was one in a million: loving, caring, empathetic and gentle towards all.
Tirelessly working hard for her family, friends and even complete strangers by offering practical but most of all spiritual support.
Loving Jehovah was the very fibre of Rose 🌹 and he will never, ever forget all she has done for him; he will remember his beautiful daughter, that sadly left us too soon.
With tears we await Job 14:14,15:

If a man dies, can he live again?
I will wait all the days of my compulsory service
Until my relief comes.
You will call, and I will answer you.
You will long (or yearn) for the work of your hands.

This is the comforting hope that our dear Rose had. We hold onto this until we can embrace her again in our arms. We are also thinking of Jim and Daniel & all the family at this very difficult time and keep you in our prayers to our loving father.
— Astrid & Terence Maxwell, Joshua and Ciara
Rose, thank you for being kind to me when very few others were.

RIP <3
— .m.
Those sparkling eyes, the jolly laugh, that wholesome hug, those empathetic ears and that unjudging heart, Rose always had a beautiful story to tell and gave such encouragement and support to all the community and would do the same for a stranger. Her love had no boundaries and Jim and Daniel and all her family were always always mentioned if not nearby. Stories of Rose I am sure will continue to uplift and motivate many. A presence that will be felt and longed to be reunited with. Forever in our hearts xxx
— Soracha Nic Dhonnchadha
Rose was a Christian, kind, non judgemental and a privilege to have known. I look forward to seeing you again.

— Josh Kennedy
