Remember me in quiet days, while raindrops whisper on your pane. Remember in your memories have no grief, let the joy we knew remain. Remember me if once you wake, to catch a glimpse of red sunrise. Remember when your thoughts do turn to me, know that I would not have you cry, but live for me, and laugh for me. When you are happy so am I. Remember an old joke we shared. Remember me when spring walks by. Think once of me when you are glad And while you live, I shall not die!

Rosemary had many friends of different nationalities. She treated everybody fairly and respectfully. I am from Philippines.She and my husband were friends for years before I met Rosemary. When my husband passed away he bequeathed to us Rosemary. His last words were “ take her for coffee”I was honoured when she appointed me as her next of kin in her previous 2 surgeries at Mt. St. Joseph
Hospital and several emergency visits in the year 2012-2014. She trusted me with her life and appreciated me for what I did.There were 4 of us musketeers-Mohinder, Janet ,Esther and Rosemary- we enjoyed a good laugh, good food, good company. Now there are three. Rosemary in heaven was our joy.We miss her.

Rosemary had been a special genuine friend for many years. When my husband passed way , he left us his friend, Rosemary. His last words before passing—Take care for coffee.
I was honoured when he appointed me as his “next of kin” in her previous 2 surgeries at Mt Saint Joseph Hospital and several emergency visits in the years 2013–2014.

Dear Rosemary,
Everytime when you tell me it's time to go, I feel horrible inside. We have so much great memories since we first met in 1992. Now that you are gone, I will miss you always.

Linda and the Wang family.

My dearest Rose Mary, your heart was as big as your personality, you lived life to its fullest and loved everyone. I’m so grateful to you for being my brothers surrogate grandma in Vancouver. You we’re always there for one another. Leo loved you so much. I feel so privileged to have met you. I will miss our dinners at Queeny Park when I visit and our shopping days at Winners and I will especially miss your stories from your younger days. There wasn’t anyone in your life, young or old, that you didn’t spoil. You welcomed all of us with open arms.
I will miss you Rose Mary . God Bless.

Rosemary, I miss you and I love you. You came in to our lives as a friend and left us as family. I’ll never forget our lunches at our favourite Indian restaurants and yes, even McDonald’s. I’m so thankful that we got to spend so many Christmas’s together. This year’s celebration will not be the same without you. Your kindness towards all the “grandkids” in our family was never taken for granted. We all appreciated the love you shared with and for us. It gives me great joy knowing you and “Victor “ are sharing a laugh even as I am writing this. May God bless you, you will be missed.

Love, Mo

A special friend who enjoyed life and made me feel special. We enjoyed many laughs and meals together. Fond memory of us enjoying an evening at Vijs and seeing her smile as she experienced the food. Food brought her so much joy and it was an honour to prepare her favorite meal every Christmas - Prime Rib with Yorkshire Pudding. We will miss you Rose Mary and you will live on in our hearts forever. A special thank you to Leo for being there for her always.

I can’t believe you are gone. It seems like you would always be there. The last time I saw you, I quickly hurried off to pack my bags for my trip back to Seattle. Little did I know, that was the last time I would see you.

Thank you for being so kind not only to me, but my entire family, especially to my mother. I knew how special you were to my mom, and although I’ve never said it out loud, I’ve always wanted to thank you for being such a great friend to her.

I still remember when I asked you, as you gobbled down the roasted duck you loved from your favourite dimsum restaurant, whether there was anything left that you wanted to do in your life at 92 years old. You leisurely sipped your cup of jasmine tea, smiled, dignified, and said “No.” You told me that you were content with eating out with your friends everyday, chatting away in delight at the most minuscule things in life. That all you needed was your Tim Hortons instant black coffee (one I disagree with), and exploring new exciting cuisines with my mom and I...Your tolerance for the spicy Gamjatong (Korean pork bone soup) is astonishing.

I saw a woman who lived a full and beautiful life. One who never took a moment for granted. One who was loved but loved selflessly in return. One who secretly shoved a $100 red pocket under the table for my birthday and gave me a wink, my mom oblivious. One who I would proudly call my Caucasian mother. My family.

I know you are in a better place now, free from suffering, diseases, and sushi. Perhaps still sipping that jasmine tea atop that fluffy white cloud, smirking as I write this message to you. I hope you know that I love you and miss you very much.

Let’s make a reservation for Sun Sui Wah soon.

Rosemary, I miss you much. I love you, for the mother that you were to me. For what you have taught me of what a strong, independent woman looks like. For being an angel to my life. Every moment we shared, I cherish. I hold close. I embrace. I love you always.
