Hiya, I'm a friend of Daisy and I just want to say I would have loved to meet you after what Daisy has told me. She is very fond of you.
Hailey Burton – Hunstanton, England 19/01/06
Hi Rosie it's Daisy! Missing you as always! Guess what, at Christmas I performed in a concert at school with my friend Sarah. It was really cool. We sang sugababes Ugly and everybody cheered. I imagined you sitting in the audience and you kept me going, cheering and you made me smile. I really miss you but I know you're still with me at heart and you always will be. I will never forget you Rosie, nobody will. I love youxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Rosie, I am so sorry I haven’t spoken to you in ages but I have been thinking about you constantly especially now... because you will never guess what we are moving house! I can't believe it either!!!!!
However all the keepsakes I have kept of you are safe and are not going anywhere without me. They are very special to me and I would never forget them! At the new house I might be turning half the garage into a dance studio! How cool is that!!! I'm thinking of you always lots and lots of love Alice xxxx :-
Alice Wells – Bottesford, England 31/01/06
I lost my own daughter, Christina, in 1981 to natural causes. She was only 26 days old and the hurt was, and still is, incredible. I can only imagine what it must be for you, having ten wonderful years with her.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, and I hope justice prevails. God bless.
Ronald Crawford – Houston, Texas USA 01/02/06
Hi Rosie! How you doing? Do you Know that poem that Laurence wrote for you the one called Rosie May my sister? Well, at school we are sort of singing it in music as a tribute to you. It's going to be so cool. I am sure that you would have loved it. Maybe when we're together again you can hear it even though I am sure you'll be listening now. Keep on dancing up there hun, lots of love and missing you always, Daisyxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Daisy Allington – Hunstanton, England 08/02/06
This is a terible thing that happened to Rosie May, and even now it is unbelievable to think that she’s gone. She will never be forgotten, my thoughts are with you all and I hope for justice! Xx

I have just read your story and got onto the website. I am very sorry about your big loss. Rosie-
Danielle – Wicklow, Ireland 19/02/06
I just read on the Mirror website about the trouble you are having in your town getting a memorial bench installed in memory of Rosie Mary, and I'd like to say that I think the people preventing you doing this are terrible and extremely misguided. My daughter Tanya (21) was murdered in a home invasion in 2002 and so I know how I would feel in your place. My sympathies at your loss -
Val Burr – Palmerston North, New Zealand 20/02/06
Hey Rosie, I wish I knew you better but I didn't. Are you having fun, keep dancing and keep all the angles entertained loadz a love Nicole

The current circumstances have overwhelmed me recently and not having you here is ever-
Chloe Smith – Nottingham, England 27/02/06
Hiya, I am so sorry for the loss of Rosie May. I am Lydia’s best mate and she has told me all about the tragedy of a lovely and beautiful girl. She was loved at dancing with Lydia and she was a talented girl. Lots of love Daniel and Lydia xxxxxxxx Lydia misses her so muchxxxxxxxx
Daniel Gilbert – Bingham, England 01/03/06
I’m so sorry about what happened.
I go to school with Sophie Anderson.
Sam Cox – Nottingham, England 02/03/06
Rosie May was well loved and now well missed. Rosie May deserves a bench what ever any one else thinks, she deserves a statue. She was the star of the stage and I know the star of some of our hearts and lives. I know Rosie May that you are looking over us hoping we are being nice, following the example you left behind. It shouldn’t have been you, it shouldn’t have been anyone but you deserve better Rosie May. Missing you loads and loads and am finding it hard to be going to school and going places and seeing that you are not there . Miss you. Gone but never forgotten.
Chloe Barclay – Bottesford, England 07/03/06
Such a beautiful life cut short in such tragic circumstances for no reason. Why these evil things have to happen in life I'll never understand as I'm sure the Storrie family never will. I really admire how you have turned such hurt and pain into something so wonderful for others. I hope your great work continues to be a success and may your daughters name live on in the lives of those you have helped. May Rosie May look down on her family and friends with love and pride at what they have achieved. God Bless you all and may you all be reunited with Rosie May in heaven one day.
Lisa Brown – Strabane, N Ireland 08/03/06

A little girl to be so very proud of.
Elizabeth – Scotland 09/03/06
I never met you but I know Becky is very sensitive about the fact what happened to you, I feel so sad and helpless when I heard about what happened. Actually Becky cries nearly every time she hears the song brown eyed girl and its a hit with my grandad he loves it lol!! Well I cant wait too meet you when I come up to heaven! I bet your as beautiful as Becky and your family says. I think you are beautiful anyway you really inspire people and myself. r.i.p. I send my love to all your family, may they have happy thoughts and keep their heads up too look at an angel looking down at them. Rosie May you are an angel no matter what!!! It’s been very moving talking to you Rosie May and I will definitely come back and see what else the loving people have written. All my love

John – Llanelli, Wales 12/03/06
I read your story in a magazine and instantly felt emotional and my heart goes out to your family and all the people who knew Rosie May. I do hope things get easier although I know this will be hard. my thoughts are with you today and always. best wishes Mandy xx.
Mandy – Milton Keynes, England 16/03/06
Just the thought of anything happening to any of my 3 children is enough to make me feel I could not live without them. I can only imagine the hurt, frustration, anger and pain you all must be going through. Rosie May looked a beautiful child, one to be proud of and cherished. And I’m sure where ever she is now that’s what she will be receiving. God bless you all and let her memory live on.
Joanne Giacopci – Nottingham, England 19/03/06
I cant even begin to imagine how it must feel to lose a child, and I hope I never know, but how wonderful to let such good come from such loss, keep up the amazing work in Rosie May's name and you know she will never be forgotten, what a beautiful little girl, who achieved such a lot in such a short life and who will never be forgotten by those who knew her and those who didn’t xxxx
Nettie – Farnborough, England 20/03/06
What a wonderful website and beautiful tribute to a lovely young lady. I am so very sorry for you loss but I am sure she looks down from heaven and loves the work you are doing.
A charming little angel
Fair as fair could be
Blowing tender blessing
And dancing in the clouds.
Always she is with you
And always will she be
Watching the love you spread
And delights in what she sees
Mandi – Birmingham, England 21/03/06
I read about your daughter in my Best Magazine, I think your local council (Bottesford Parish Council), should be ashamed of themselves, it should be your family they are thinking about and your needs you were denied the chance of a future with your Daughter. The family of the teenager Paul Smith, should realise this and accept the design which gives you as a family the most comfort regardless of the design and wording on the bench. They can still see their Son in Prison you can never see your Daughter again your loss is greater than theirs. Good Luck with everything you do in Rosie May's memory The Rosie May Home etc She will always live on in your heart. Linda xxx
God bless you all for being so strong and encouraging and a true inspiration to all who have lost young ones like Rosie. She's so precious and I can't imagine the loss of such a beautiful life. She dances in my heart, so to me, she still dances. Dance on Rosie!
Debi DeWitt – Rolla, MO, USA 22/03/06
We will miss Rosie May. I always thinking of her and all the good times we had at primary school. I will never forget Rosie May she is still dancing and singing in heaven and we all miss her loads. Thinking about you all. Xxx

Hey Rosie it’s been a while since I’ve written but I’ve been really busy. In 2 weeks is my birthday and I hope that you will be there watching over me. I hope you are enjoying yourself up there. keep shining your love upon us.
Stephanie – Bronx, New York, USA 05/04/06
Hi, first I send my love and hugs to your family. When your picture was in the paper many people said how much my daughter looks like you, and I had to agree. Then last year my mother in law was in Newark hospital and the lady in the next bed knew you. She was taken aback by how alike you both look. I have followed your families fund raising and think its brilliant. My daughter dances alot, also like you. Today we went to Bottesford car boot and I noticed people were looking at my daughter..I know why...our whole family are thinking of you all..God bless
Jennie and Family – Newark, England 16/04/06
I was reading your story in an old magazine and felt it not too late to send my thoughts on how courageous you and your family have been. I can’t imagine the pain and my heart goes out to you. I think the work you have done in Sri Lanka is amazing and Rosie-

Ben – London, England 20/04/06

I've just been to watch the Dance for Rosie May 2006! Everyone was great but you would of won the whole thing if you were here. Today I bought a badge with your signature on it and it looks great!! I have seen some more pictures of you and you looked so beautiful! You will always have a place in my heart. Keep dancing in heaven!
Lots of love
Millie Gribby – Bottesford, England 30/04/06
I am so sorry for what happened. I was Rosie May's age when it happened so I did not understand the situation fully and the effects it had on people. I read the other comments in this book and was touched. I would like to say that this afternoon at Dance for Rosie May 2006 was wonderful. It meant a lot to everyone who competed, and I'm sure it would mean a lot to the poor children you are so kindly raising money for, and of course, Rosie May.
Lots of love, thanks and sympathy,
Jenny Leggat – Nottinghamshire, England 30/04/06
I danced at the "dance for Rosie May" yesterday! It was a great day and I think everyone enjoyed it! It was a lovely idea and I hope it becomes an annual event!

Dear Rosie May,
Just a short message to wish you a very Happy 13th Birthday. I still keep in touch with your Mum and Dad occasionally. I wanted you to know that I still think of you and them every now and then, and it always inspires me to do better just as you did in all you did.
I'll always remember you and your family; keep on smiling and dancing, Rosie -

I sat, getting sun burnt, outside the other day and I was thinking of you, on a beautiful May day and how much I miss you. The little things like coming round for a swim and barbeque are still sore gaps in my life, that I try not to get angry about but find myself still so very hurt that your not here. I know you are looking down on us all and I try to find strength in that but it is difficult.
You are a star I always look for,
In the night sky.
The flowing stream,
That passes by.
The brightest petal on a flower,
That blooms in the spring.
The bluebird on the branch,
That begins to sing.
Your presence is always here,
And I always look for you,
I know you look over everyone,
But I still really miss you. xxx xxx xxx
Chloe Smith – Bottesford, England 14/05/06
Well another year has gone bye. Every year it makes more upset. Every year I’m dreading it, because its your birthday and your not here 4 me 2 celebrate it. Your parents and brothers must hate it as well. Every time I go 2 ur house and check ur bedroom everything is still there. But its nt good 4 me. Me and Lydia miss u so much tht we can’t do half of the things now, because u used 2 tel us what we were doing. I miss u so much Rosie May. I wish I could 4get what happened but I can’t!!!!
So good bye and I will never let u leave my heart.
rest in peace darling!!
Luv ur frend

Hi Rosie May
Sorry we could not come and visit on your birthday. We were both thinking of you throughout the day, as it was a beautiful, sunny day where we were :-
Just wanted to say a few words and thought this poem expressed how we feel:
When the warmth of the sun touches our faces,
we see your smile and feel your embrace.
We hear the whisper of love in the wind and know that you are close to us again.
As the days come and go and the world moves on, we know you're still with us, you'll never be gone.
When the angel came and took your hand, we cried as you left for an unknown land, but heaven rejoiced as you came into sight, for your soul was a diamond, shining so bright.
All our love always. Richard & Alison xxx
Alison & Richard Storrie – York, England 16/05/06

I didn’t know Rosie that well but I can remember her. I'm good friends with Jack Turner who introduced me to her on the way out to Beaumanor Hall. I didn’t have much time to know her hat well.

Heya..Just thought I'd sign as I haven't signed in ages. I didn't really know Rosie May, but I was in her year at school. She was known as a young, lively girl with a great ability to dance, act and sing. Along with her close circle of friends. Now her remaining friends that go to Belvoir like Alice and Roanna, have made new friends and are coping well. But I know and everyone else knows that no-
Anon – Nottinghamshire, England 30/05/06
I just wanted to say even though I did not know Rosie May,that she was a very gifted and beautiful child and I hope she may rest in peace.

Hi Rosie, just to let you know when your bench is fixed at the ford I promise I will look after it. Lots of love Emily Wells!xxxxxx
Emily Wells – Bottesford, England 08/07/06
I'm off to Tanzania for one month and I'm really excited but scared at the same time. Its a great opportunity and I'm going to help build new classrooms for children in a town called Iringa. I'm also going on Safari and trekking across mountains. I'm fortunate to have these experiences and it still pains me you cannot. So I have decided to take a rose bud out there and leave it in the most beautiful, breathtaking scene I can find. This means that your memory can be spread across another continent and you can hopefully look down and share the view. I'll will write when i get back. Thinking of you always and forever. All my love, Chloe x x x x x x x x x x x x x
Chloe Smith – Bottesford, UK 10/07/06
It is tragic that anyone as obviously talented and beautiful in spirit as Rosie May should leave us. I am sorry for your loss.
Thank you for sharing Rosie May with the world. I am certain that she is dancing in the clouds in Heaven.
Emma – Gold Coast, Australia 11/07/06
I know that words will never be able to express my sadness at the untimely and brutal death of your beloved Rosie-
I hope you’re your two sons give you the will and strength to carry on.
I lost my only son Ben to murder, he was 16, I now have 2 beautiful daughters who keep me going.
The justice system in this country is farcical and I pray that in time people will realize that sentences for the evil people who kill, are far too low.
I have made a website for Ben,
Please feel free to see for yourself how beautiful and loved he was too.
Sending you my warmest heartfelt wishes xx Terri

Rosie was a wonderful dancer and a fabulous friend. She performed in many shows at the palace with me. In the first show (fame) Rosie was my dance partner. Since Rosie was murdered new youth theatre has never been the same. Lost but never forgotten.
Sophie Chambers – UK 19/07/06
I read the article on your daughter in a recent magazine about how you were trying to get the bench in her memory, so I just wanted to leave a message hoping that you manage to achieve this.
You deserve to be allowed this after all that you've been through. I hope it all works out. My condolences xx

I fell upon your website purely by accident but do remember the time of your tragedy, and what a tragedy it was, a beautiful, talented, and gorgeous little girl who definetely would have gone far. Your website is truly compelling and from the heart -
CJ – Doncaster , UK 23/08/06
Jambo (hello in swahili), I had a fantastic time in Tanzania, there were so many sites to see and a lot of things to do that a month flew by. I met school children in Iringa and together we helped to build their new school, because the other was too small to accommodate it's pupils. I also went trekking through the Livingstone Mountains to Lake Malawi, and it was here I left, as promised, a rose bud. The scenery mirrored your character, bright, beautiful, full of life and dreams. It was the most breath-
Not a day goes by which I don't think of you, the bright angel, you beautiful star. x x lots of love x x
Chloe Smith – Bottesford, England 18/09/06
Such a beautiful child. Now an angel. Rest in Heaven's peace. God bless you and your family. May they find peace.
Olivia Close -
As a teacher in a local school I understand the devastation of seeing a child hurt, I cannot imagine how you feel but as I teach one of your daughter’s friends I can only imagine that she was very talented and special as is my student.
God bless. xxx

By chance found your web page for Rosie. I am unsure what happened but something tragic and terrible. What a lovely child her tributes made me cry. She will live on, in your memories and in your work-

Awful, awful tragedy. The parents of Rosie are a true inspiration to others in their selfless fundraising and help of others. How you have turned this around and carried on is admirable beyond words. A beautiful and talented little girl x

My sister (Christine Clampin nee Bellamy) photographed Rosie May when she was a baby...she was a beautiful....and i am sure your memories of her are equally beautiful. We too have been to Sri Lanka and are supporting a family out there. What a wonderful way of ensuring Rosie lives on in everyone’s hearts forever, a true angel.

I just wanted to tell you how much I like your bench in the village. It is so pretty, just like you. It is nice to go and sit on it and think of you. We will be thinking about you at Christmas, we have glittery ballet shoes on our tree and whenever they shine it reminds me of you. Take care and keep dancing, love Chloe xxxxxx
