We visited the lovely ladies (and Russell) at Small World Daycare and Learning Center, where Rosalie spent two lovely months. She loved it there, and dear Ms. Sharyn, Ms Brea, Ms Belinda and Michelle, she loved you all. She would try to say goodbye to Michelle in the afternoons when I would pick her up, "Bye Ma-elle!" she'd say while waving.
And then as I'd carry her to my bike, "Bye Rodzy-bop! (Rosalie's park) Bye Baby-bop! Bye Sand-house!"
Then we'd bike home, past the ducks ("Mo-mo ducks") and the "big tuttle" and she'd say "oh! Big Moon" if the moon was out in the late afternoon, or if not, "Where'd the big moon go?"
They had made a poster for her with all the kids' handprints as butterflies, saying goodbye to our Bunny, "We will miss you", "Rosalie is in Heaven's hands", "Rest in Heaven" etc. I cried while I hugged them all.
I miss you, my beautiful beautiful beautiful.
