Celebration by: Irene Jones

Date added: 3 Aug 2010

Rosa was a free spirit but losing her sight did not stifle that spirit.
She conquered the loss by leading a full life. She was an active fundraiser for the Guide Dogs organization and became an official speaker. Her forte was touring schools, answering personal and awkward questions that children will ask but adults wont. Through these questions she helped to educate younger people that a blind person isn't deaf and dumb, but a person who can give so much back into the community. Children were mesmorised at some of the beautiful crafts produced by my mother.She became a well known person in her area where she lived through her most precious gift - Vicky - her seeing eye dog.Ironically Vicky died with cancer of the eyes when she retired into the company of my mother.My mother was a survivor and her legacy was to give hope to others with afflictions. She is sadly missed by all that knew her and epecially by my daughter and myself as having lost a good friend.
