Daisy Allington – Hunstanton, England 01/01/07
We have been thinking of you this Christmas, hoping that you are watching over us all and can see how we miss you.
I read this poem whilst thinking of you:
Goodnight sweet Angel Light
Goodbye to Angel bright
Enchantress of the night
Down where willows weep
And ripplings grasses sigh
Barns with clovered lofts
Send quaffings far and wide
In aromatic skies
To fields once soft and green
When a blossomed cosmic mist
Of rainbows sent their gifts
Of floral scenes entwined
Beauty lost back to night
Help her pay pains cost Lord
They cannot set it right
Goodbye our Angel LIght
Goodnight sweet Angel bright
Brown eyed beauty of the night
Forever in our thoughts
Lots of Love Alison & Richard Storrie xxx

Thinking of you all over Christmas and the New Year and remembering the terrible time 3 years ago when you lost your beautiful Rosie May and praying for you all at this very sad time. Xxxx
Carmel – Cornwall, England 02/01/07
Although I did not know Rosie, I feel like I had more in common with her than my name, from what people have written about her she seemed like a fantastic girl and I cant believe how people think this is ok. My condolences. I shall pray for her tonight.
from Rosie age 15
Even tho I didnt kno Rosie May its very upsetting to kno dat sumthin lyk dis cud happen...from what i have read it all started as a chase, nd it ended up with a murder. I have so much respect for her family (even tho i dont kno dem), for being strong nd being able to get thru with everyday, nd dis website is very helpful because it lets people kno dat there IS bad people out there and dat u need to watch out. R.I.P. Rosie May
Sendy – Fairfax, USA 06/01/07
As another Christmas and New Year go by without the same cheer they had 3years ago, i'm comforted in the knowledge that you are watching over all of us. As i think of you dancing and skipping from cloud to cloud i miss you so much, and selfishly wish you were here with me. I am learning, slowly that to appreciate life i must live it to the full but i find myself weak sometimes however others days getting stronger. I wish all your family the very best in 2007 and hope it brings them comfort and joy. Still thinking of you Rosie and your family, always and forever. Love U all x x x
Chloe Smith – Bottesford, England 17/01/07
Hi Rosie, I have been selling badges at school to help with your memorial fund. I hope you are dancing in heaven. I'm sure you are. I hope you've made lots of friends as well. We put a purple plant and a decoration by your headstone to say happy Christmas. I really wish you were here so that we could spend Christmas together. I love you Rosie.
Rosie I love her so,
How I didn't want her to go,
The funeral was the hardest part,
Tearing my heart all apart
Lots and lots and lots of love..your cousin Lydia xx
Lydia – Nottingham, England 17/01/07

Tara – UK 18/01/07
Hey Rosie, we've bin thinking of you alot recently and in everything we do you are always in our thoughts. Ro is taking me to see pussycat dolls and Rhianna on Monday! I'm so excited , I remember when we always used to go to pop concerts together, they were the best! And I'm sure you will be with us when we go, singing along! We can't believe its 2007 and it has been so long since you went when it seems like it was just yesterday when it all happened. We missed you so much over Christmas and new year it was a difficult time for us but we know that you were looking over us, caring for our thoughts. Love you so much forever and ever.

I’m 11 years old and I read your story in my mums mag. When I read Rosie May’s story I found it very upsetting and I was touched by it and i hope that Rosie May is never forgotten. she looks very talented and she is so beautiful and I hope she has a nice time in heaven
Ellie – 02/02/07
Rosie May , I only met you twice but the last time I saw you was at a party ; remember you and Annabel trying on my very high platform shoes ?? !! You were fascinated so I took pictures which are now with your family . The shoes were so huge and made you look oh so dainty , well even more so ! I have the cd your Dad made and I have been checking out your home in Sri Lanka , which looks so fabulous . Maybe I will go there one day . You are indeed an angel in platform shoes Rosie May and I am happy I met you.
Love to you , the brown -

I was reading a book at school and at the end of the book it did a poem. There last 2 lines seemed very special, so I thought I'd put it on here.
Fly High my baby bird,
My angel, My only.
Your the angel in everybody's eyes Rosie....I love you lots and lots and think about you all the time.
Lots of love from
Cousin Lydia – Nottingham, England 07/02/07

Daisy Allington – Hunstanton, England 08/02/07
Hi Rosie May
Just wanted to say that we are thinking of you again today. I just wanted to also say that the new Take That song -
Take That song -
Here standing in the rain
The sun has gone again and nothing's gonna change Time, I need a little time as you slip out of sight And nothing heals the pain
And I know that it's you that's stopping me from falling Crashing down, losing ground till I see you again And you know...
The sun will shine, and we will see there's nothing standing in our way Love will stand and never break Never thought this could be me Do you feel what I feel?
Every time that you are near it's a beautiful world A beautiful world
Words are hard to keep inside
Even though I've tried, impossible to hide
And you know that it's me that's stopping you from falling Crashing don, losing ground till I see you again And you know ...
I'll be the stars guiding you
I'll be the place that you hide
I'd run a thousand miles, a thousand miles to be by your side
Lots of love Alison & Richard xxx
Alison & Richard Storrie – York, England 09/02/07

Chelsea – Nottingham, England 12/02/07
I'm sorry I haven't written anything on this website for a while. I guess i just couldn't think of what to say.
Anyway... I still miss you loads and i always will do. I hope that you're still dancing up in heaven... no one would want you to give that up, it was your dream.
You're always in my heart.
Miss you forever,
Lucy Hackett – Bottesford, England 13/02/07
I am so sadden about the death of a ten yr old girl. her story just shocks me. i cant believe someone would want to take a precious lil girl who had mean the world to her family. I know she had big dreams and you all are going to miss her. but remember god takes his angels first. He gave you 10 enjoyable years with Rosie May and decided it was time for her to become one of his angels. so when ever you are feeling down just look up to the sky and smile and remember that there are no more tears and no more worries she’s in god hands now.

Anonamous – Herts, England 16/03/07
Hi Rosie, I came on here to find information on the competition and thought I’d leave a message.
I’ve started at a new college now in Nottingham for dancing, acting and singing and its great. I’ve never really had to sing in front of people before, and now I’ve been thrown into a class of about 25 and made to sing in front of them all – It’s terrifying! but I’m gradually getting the confidence to get up there and just do it. but there has been this one song that I haven’t been able to listen to since you left, because it just made me cry, and I have now found the sheet music for it, and I’m going to try and sing it in the next class.
I hope you are there to help me sing it and to give me the confidence to do it, and just to listen to it...
Miss you always
lots of love Beccy xxxx
Beccy Slater – Stathern, England 17/03/07
"I'll keep a part of you with me,
And everywhere I am there you'll be".
I miss your family very much (especially your Mummy, the boy and Luke of course :-
I'm looking forward to seeing your godparents in Australia and learning how to surf!
I was thinking of your Mummy & Daddy on Sunday when they did their run, they did very well-
I'm sending something soon to put on your tree from NZ, I hope you like it.
Thinking of you always.
Lots of love, Lizzie xXx P.S. thanks for looking after my bears while I'm away :-

Rest In Peace Rosie May.. I didn’t Know you very well but I knew many people loved you so very much. You were such a beautiful little girl who no-
Alice Kelk – Long Clawson, England 26/03/07
I came upon this site by accident. Phew! I am choked! What a truly wonderful family you are to do all you are doing in the memory of your beautiful and talented daughter. Rosie May would be two months older than my daughter Mimi. Mimi is so like Rosie May. She too, lives to dance and perform and is also known for her sparkle and smile. I am overwhelmed as I read all about her and cannot begin to appreciate what you must be feeling. When Mimi next dances she will do it with part of Rosie May in her heart.
Sue Hellawell – Huddersfield, England 03/04/07
I felt compelled to write in this beautiful book of condolence because I recently visited Bottesford Primary School with my little girl. My heart breaks for Rosie May's mother who probably made the same visit and who would certainly have had dreams, hopes and plans for her daughter. I'm deeply sorry for your truly terrible loss. Rosie May will be an inspiration for my daughter who seems to share the same zest for life.
Andrea – Bingham, England 03/04/07
Rosie, I haven't spoke to you for a while. I miss you so much. The things that your mum and dad and brothers have done for you is incredible. The home, the badges, the C.D's, the dance academy, The Rosie May Balls, the Dance for Rosie may with beautiful trophies...All great things done for you Rosie. I really enjoyed the dance for rosie may children’s ball in 2005...maybe another one in 2007??? I have been reading all the poems and letters..all brilliant. I espesically like Auntie Andrea's because i too rememeber all the things that she has wrote about you and the things that you did. I rememeber you play Dick Wittington. I was sitting next to your mum. I kept whisitling my whistle when you came on. I am very proud of you Rosie and love you so very much. It's been hard not seeing you at Auntie Mary's and Uncle Graham's house. I miss not running around with you, playing schools with you, singing with you, dancing with you, playing vets with your beenie babies with you, and dressing up with you. All them things which I can't do anymore with you. I miss you soooooo much Rosie. You should see all of my pictures of you on my shelf...
I know I have put this quote before which is from a book, but it means so much to me as it reminds me of you....it is:-
Fly high my baby bird,
My angel, My only.
It describes you Rosie. A star in everyones eye.
Love you forever Rosie,Sweat Dreams, Hugs & Kisses. . .
Lots of Love you cousin Lydiaxx
Lydia Youle – Nottingham, England 05/04/07
Dear parents of Rosie-
My name is Rosie-
My greatest regards,
I have spent some time with you and your family when I was at Carmel's family. You were an angel and I think of you very often. Now I have a boy who will be 3 in September. But I'm sure you can see all of us from heaven.

Lizzie – New Zealand 09/05/07
May angels rest beside your door,
May you hear their voices sing.
May you feel their loving care for you, May you hear their peace bells ring.
May angels always care for you,
And not let you trip and fall,
May they bear you up on angel's wings,
May they keep you standing tall.
May they whisper wisdom in your ear,
May they touch you when you need,
May they remove from you each trace of fear, May they keep you from feeling greed.
May they fill you with their presence,
May they show you love untold,
May they always stand beside you
And make you ever bold.
May they teach you what you need to know About life here and here-
May they fill you always with their love
Rosie May, you are now an angel to us all. We hope that you can watch over us and keep us strong.
Thinking of you especially today on your 14th birthday. You are forever in our thoughts. Lots of love Alison & Richard xxxx

On your 14th Birthday we have been thinking of you and your family all day and I have been singing a song that best describes the way we are feeling.
"oh to hold you close, tonight,
I'd wait for life"
We know that you will always shine down on us.
All our love. Xxx
Jane and Martin Lewis – Nottingham, England 09/05/07
Rosie, today was really hard to get through. It should of been a happy day as you are celebrating your 14th birthday but it was also filled with sadness as you weren't here to celebrate it. I carried your rememberance card around with me all day. It got me thinking of all the good memories and all your other birthday parties. Like your big inflatable swimming party.
Rosie happy birthday...loving you always.. Love From Cousin Lydia, Cousin Oliver, Auntie Caroline and Uncle Nick xx
Lydia – Nottingham, England 09/05/07
Dear Rosie May,
Just wanted to wish you a very Happy Birthday (even though, as I'm writing this, it is now one day after your birthday) and to let you know that I haven't forgotten you or your family. I'll never forget you and you'll always be in my thoughts, especially on your birthday.
Bye for now, love Daniel xxx
P.S. I will leave a short tribute for you as a present, when I get a chance to write it.
Daniel Lam – Bracknell, England 10/05/07

Hi Rosie May
You are in our thoughts every day and just want you to know that we miss you dearly.
This is my favourite Purple Ronnie poem. I am sure this is how all your family and friends often feel so I just wanted to share it with you...and let you know how we are feeling...
There are times when we really do miss you And think of you missing us too So we close our eyes tight And we daydream That we are together with you
This is always a comfort. Missing you xx
Love Alison & Richard xxxx

I was vaguely thinking of you today and I thought I would come on your website. The fact that it was your 14th birthday makes everyone think more [[happy birthday by the way and sorry for it being Very late] I think of all the things that make me angry or sad or annoyed and I realise that I take life for granted. Everything I do doesn't matter to me and then I think of you being taken so young and I think Why should I feel sorry for myself when other people have been through worse things? Why should I take life for granted?? So thank you for making me see that. I hope you are well and dancing in heaven with all the angels. We think of you and our thoughts are with those people that the Rosie May house is trying to help. Missing you hun love sarah. X~X~X~X~X~X~X~X

I was watching 'This Morning' and felt drawn to write and offer my sincere condolences for your loss. I cannot think why I have not done so before, I was like many others, aware of the wonderful little girl you lost 3 years ago. It shames me to think I have done nothing about it before now. Good Wishes to you and your families, and believe that your angel is watching all the good work you are doing in her name. Regards, Linx
Linda Richards (Linx) – Ceredigion, Wales 23/07/07
Hello to all the family, Please accept our very best for your loss and for the future. My hubby was born in Sri Lanka, and we were thinking of some way that we could help, after the tsunami, now with your help, and because of Rosie May, you may now have given us a way. Our thoughts and prays are with you all, that through Rosie May have now found a better way. Regards Karen and Andy Levett. Leicester.
Karen Levett – Leicester, England 23/07/07
When we have done all the work
we were sent to Earth to do,
we are allowed to shed our body
which imprisons our soul like a
cocoon encloses the future butterfly.
And when the time is right,
we can let go of it
and we will be free of pain,
free of fears and worries ….
free as a very
returning home to God …..which is a place where we are never alone, where we continue to grow and to sing and dance, where we are with those we loved, and where we are surrounded with more love than we can ever imagine.
Sandie – Burscough, Lancs, England 23/07/07
I saw you on this morning today and thought you both were a true inspiration and so wonderful. You could have lost your faith in mankind but instead you have made a fantastic contribution to the world. You are what heroes are made of. All good wishes to you and your family.

Dear "Storrie" Family. Just a short message I am Don Murray's PA and participate in different things that Don and Jenny do. I would like to let you know that you are all in my thoughts often. We as a family are arranging fund raising within John Paul College for the Rosie May home so will keep you informed on how we go. Our daughter is doing an assignment for Law and Journalism at Uni and is having the assistance of a journalist from the Courier Mail and this too is about Rosie May. Even though I don't know you personally I feel that I do as I am closely involved in what Don and Jen do. Thinking of you often. Jenny

Joe Smith – Bottesford, England 25/08/07
I did the race for life yesterday (well walk for life) not fit enough to run it all yet! I raced for my grandad, and a close family friend who died this year. I also raced for you. I know your supposed to race for someone who died of cancer, but I felt I needed to race for you as well.
I cant believe how much has happened since you left, but it doesn’t seem that long since you were here with us. I see your friends around, and I try to think what you would be like now; everyone’s grown up sooo much in the last 3 and a half years; including me – I’m moving out tomorrow eek! I’m moving closer to my dance college, bit nervous but excited!
You were in a dream I had the other night, and I woke up crying. From what I remember of it, it was sort of a chance for me to finally say goodbye to you. I just wanted to say thankyou for that.
Love you always. Keep dancing.

Hi Rosie May, Goodness it's along time since we've left you a message. We came on to look at the all the updates on your home and the competition. We went to our villa again in the summer and your trees are growing beautifully .There is one that has grown the quickest and at night right above it is your star shining. Somehow we do feel closer to you when we are there. You are in our thoughts every day and we all still miss you terribly.
Your Mum and Dad are so busy building a future for so many children and we support them fully. One day we will go to see your home and meet all the wonderful people and children but for now we think of you.
Much love and massive respect for your family love Sarah, James , Alice and Emily xxx peace to pods:}

Lydia – Nottingham, England 14/09/07
I was just reading Rosie's parents story about her in the magazine Pick Me Up and I felt I had to leave something to this beautiful little girl. She looks like she could have achieved anything she set her mind to but fate dealt her a cruel blow , to her devastated family, my thoughts are with you, but please remember that she is always with you in everything you do, and she would have been pleased with the home you have set up in her memory.
The world's most beautiful angel

I had the overwhelming urge to find out more about your beautiful little girl after reading a story in the 20th of September issue of Pick Me Up. Your daughter was a beautiful little girl and will be a beautiful angel looking down on us. I have 5 children and it brought tears to my eyes reading about her terrible death. Good luck in all you do, you and your family are an inspiration. Eternal life grant to her oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her, May she rest in peace, Amen xx

I knew Rose May through one of my friends and from drama, I never really got to know her properly but spoke to her and spent some time with her and she was so genuine and a really great person. what you have done is really amazing setting up a fund to help others. Even though i hardly knew Rosie I miss her and always feel upset on her birthday and new year because I think of her so much. I wish you all the best for the future. love Katie Xxxx

I'm back from Uni for the weekend to visit the family and get fed properly, eating proper food for a change. University life has been hard to adapt to but i am enjoying it. Although there's a lot of distractions there is not a day i don't think of you. Your beauty, inside and out, that touched us all. I miss dancing now that i'm at Uni, the clubs at night aren't the same. I'd give anything to see you twirl again and hear you laugh. I miss you so much little angel. Watch over your family & keep dancing on those clouds. Lots of Love, Chloe xxxxx

I hope you are continuing to excel at dancing up there. Now we are both fifteen! and yet i remember so clearly when we were ten years old, all those good times, do you remember when your mum and my mum came and joined us on the trampoline? that was hilarious!
i know you'll have settled in and made many new friends and dances and you can show me when we meet again...
Rock on Rosie,

When i heard about your murder i felt terrible to hear that your beautiful life had been taken from you, just three doors down from where i live.
You probably wouldnt remember me as it was such a long brief time ago. I went to the same dance school as you and did tap and modern. I remember i was in the same tap class as you.
I remember thinking at the time that i wished i was as talented as you were.
Rosie you are very missed from all of us even the people who didnt't know you that well. You were so talented.
I bet your dancing away on a cloud somewhere.
Love Harriet x
Harriet Cains – Nottingham, England 10/05/08
Happy Birthday for the other day. I love for you to still be around and dance in all our shows. You're the person who makes them shine!! Miss you and love you loads

Hey Rosie, its Ro :]
I just wanted to say Happy 15th birthday for friday!
I was thinking of you all day and how hard it was to believe that it had reached your 15th birthday...
Me and Becca left you some pretty flowers on your headstone :] We also sat and made you a daisy chain which made your headstone look even prettier :], i hope you liked them.
One beacon hill we let off lots of ballons and ate the yummiest birthday cake, which your mum had made. I am sure you got all of our messages, and i am sure that you had great birthday...
I miss you Rosie
Always and Forever
Love your best friend

I didn't know her but I wish I did, all of my friends talk very highly of her. It's such a shame when someone's life is taking away from them especialy when it was a talented girl who could of actually made something of her life. I can't believe she was taken so early.I can only begin to imagine how you feel, but i don't thin k anyone will truly know what it really feels like to lose someone you truly loved. My feeling's are with you and when we do our dance show for your charity i will have Rosie May in my mind.

Well. What a gorgeous and talented girl Rosie May sounds like! What an awful thing to be put through, having your amazing daughter taken from you at such a young age. I'm only 15, but I can't imagine living without my parents. You seem so strong. I have just come back from Sri Lanka (unawatuna) too -

I can't believe five years has gone by,so much has happened but it also seems like yesterday when we lost you.Life is so very cruel!!
As every year, we went up to Beacon Hill last night and lit some pretty pink candles and raised a glass to you.
Your home is now officially opened and with that comes ten little girls, look after them Rosie-
My candle is burning in my window over the next few days remembering you and everything you represent.
May God bless you and your family ,and help them survive the next five years without you.
Always in my thoughts

Stephanie – Grantham, England 03/07/09
I didn't know Rosie-
Moment filled with memories
She stoops to fix her shoe
Her heart is racing quickly
Her dress rehearsal due
Stage is like an ocean
Where crystals seems to shine
Beckons her to dance upon
Reflections of life's time
Suddenly she rises
She sees the magic there
Running in a gust of wind
She dances with great flair
Movement of a willow
So gracious as she sways
Gentle sounds of orchestra
Each step her grand ballet
Destiny is born now
Her graceful moves divine
Pirouettes across the stage
Her shadow now aligns
Dance of life begins now
Her music special score
Bowing for the audience
She hears the words encore
Hazel Boole – Grantham, England, 03/07/09

Rosie May was the light and soul of the performances.
I always thought that these things happen only in movies or books, never in actual life. Her death, was a tragic happening, that shattered just about everyone's hearts in two. But she isn't really gone, she is still with us, where ever we go.
I still think of you rosie; love you always beautiful x
Daisy Allington – Norfolk, UK 18/09/09
I have been introduced to Rosie May by my daughter Amy (Notts Uni) My Heart goes out to you all. It is wonderful that you can take such a positive approach to do all the wonderful things you are doing for others in her name and memory. I am sure She would be proud of you, you are to be admired.

Have been thinking about you and the girls in your home alot recently. Of your family and friends too. On Monday we went up to the beacon and lit a candle, had a drink, wrote messages and then burnt them in a lovely boat. It was a lovely night, you always feel so close when we're are up there.
In my thoughts forever, keep smiling.

I know I haven't written in a while, and I'm sorry for that, but I've been thinking about you a lot recently, thinking about how much I miss you and how life would be if you were still here.
I just wanted to write to you to let you know that I still think about you, and also because i really need you at the moment. There's been a lot going on in my life recently and i could really use you watching over me right now.
Love you and miss you for ever.. Lucy xx

Dear Rosie May,
The year seems to pass so quickly and once again, it's your birthday. So, I wish you a very Happy 17th Birthday and would like you and your family to know that I have not forgotten you, and that I'll always carry your memory in my heart. It has been quite a long time since you were gone but you are missed like it was just yesterday, and you will be remembered always.
Bye for now, love Daniel xxx

Dear Rosie,Happy 17th Birthday!
I can't believe 7 years has gone by, it only feels like yesterday that we were celebrating your 10th birthday at Bottesford Youth club! Last night all these people celebrated your 17th birthday, it was lovely! like a big reunion. Thank you Ro for organising such an amazing evening.
I often wonder what you would have looked like at 17, the clothes and music you'd have liked. I know you would be dancing, as we all are. And I bet you'd of had a boyfriend, I wonder who!
As each year goes by without you, many children's lives have changed. The hard work and dedication that your mum and dad have put into the Rosie-
There are many people who I know now who never knew you, but talk about you as if they did, and wished they had known you. Your legacy lives on.
You, me ,Ro and Lucy were the best, no one can ever change that, we will always remember you, I miss you so much.
loadsa love alice x x x x x x peace to pods x x x x x x x

Hey Rosie May :) About 5 years ago now i heard about your dance competition, and it seemed like a perfect memorial for such a special girl. So i have been dancing each year for you and it has been one of my best experiences, not only being able to dance from the heart, but also to meet your family and friends and learn so much about you. Although i have never met you, i feel like i know you now, and i owe so much to you for giving not only me, but so many others an opportunity to dance. Today, all of the academy girls sang you a happy birthday with your family, and ate beautifully made cakes (thanks to your mum!) which were delicious! From the stories i've heard and the videos i have watched, you seem like a very special girl with a great talent! Both Mary and Graham have achieved so much in your memory, just showing how much your family and friends love you. Its such a shame i never got to meet you, but i will always think of you as a friend! Wishing you a very Happy 17th Birthday! Lots of love, Ellie H xxxxxxxxxx

Hi Rosie :)
Happy belated 17th Birthday!
I never had the privellege of meeting you, although through stories and pictures, I know you touched so many lives and are so dearly missed.
I loved the competition a few weeks ago, it was such a lovely day in your memory. I felt so close to you on the day, like we were old friends! :) I wear my Rosie-

I cannot believe you would be seventeen years of age now, I have not got over the fact i have just turned sixteen. I have not posted a message on here in a long time, so much has happened in my life. Doing my gcses, did a passage on you for my english coursework and got A*, saw your parents: the most scariest event for me in ages as the last time I saw them was when I was nine or ten years of age :/. I wonder to myself day in and day out what you would be like now, would you still be a talented dancer, would you be tall, would you brunette or always stay that lovely light blonde? my heart will always be with you, your spirit was with my sister when she completed that half marathon towards your orphanage and I pray your spirit is with me throughout my exams -

I just wanted to say what a terrible terrible loss of a child, I can only imagine how hard it must have been for you both and for your sons to carry one but oh boy what you have achieved in the memory of Rosie May is just astounding. I am certain her light shines on all the brighter for all you have achieved. I send love to you all.

Happy 19th Birthday Rosie!! I have just been reading the messages I left you on all your other birthdays :) It is so strange looking back on what I wrote to you on your 11th Birthday, It is scary how fast time goes. It doesn't get any easier Rosie, I miss you just as much as I did on your 1st Birthday not with us as I have done today. I keep thinking about where you would be today, and if I would of been coming up to meet you at uni or at a dance school to celebrate your 19th. I have been to light you a candle in the cathedral today near where I live... It is not the same as being up beacon hill with everyone letting off balloons and eating cake though :) You would of loved liverpool Rosie and I wish you could be here with me... You will be forever in my heart Rosie, I love you so much. Best Friends always xXx Love Ro xXx. UK
