What a lovely lady you were . You will be missed x
Donate in memory of
Together, Sarah and I have written these words to express our love and wishes for our lovely Mum Rose.
We sadly lost Mum on Wednesday the 13th of January 2021.
It is a special thing that Mum was able to let us know her wishes before she died and was able to reach out to those who she loved.
Mum was born on the 7th of August 1961, daughter of Leslie and Kathy Brown. She enjoyed many family holidays with her parents and various family dogs.
Rose married Peter John Hodge at age 19 on 29th May 1981. In 1985 and 1990, they had two daughters- Sarah and Laura.
If there is something everyone knows about Mum, it is just how much she adored her Grandchildren. Sarah and I will weave memories of her through our children’s lives. Duke, Evie, Mylo, Alex and Hope are the luckiest children to have such a loving, kind, funny Nanny.
Together, with our Dad Peter, we thank everyone for the kind words, cards, and thoughts at this incredibly hard time. Sometimes we do not have the words, but know that we appreciate your thoughts and kindness.
If you wish to contact Peter, his number is: 01634 572465.
Please family flowers only, donations to Abigail’s Footsteps. Sadly, as a family- Sarah and Austen’s little boy Mylo was stillborn on 20th January 2020 and they chose the charity Abigail’s Footsteps to support in lieu of flowers. This charity supports bereavement training at Medway Hospital and also provides a family suite to support others going through difficult times. Before her death, Rose specifically mentioned the charity Abigail’s and would like them to benefit instead of flowers; so another family going through the same loss may have the support that we have been shown. Donations can be made via this website or via cheque, which can be sent to Peter or to the Funeral Directors (John Weir, Rainham).
Rose wasn’t particularly one to wear black; but if she did- it was always with a bit of colour and flair. For that reason, you are not obliged to wear black. But a little pink, magenta, coral, a flower here or there and something bright would put a smile on Mum’s face.
Unfortunately, during these difficult times we are somewhat limited on numbers. Both for the funeral service and regarding a wake. In due course, we would like to hold a Celebration of Life for Rose with family and friends when circumstances allow. A big picnic, balloons, bubbles and laughter - just as Rose would have liked. We would of course, love for you to comment or let us know your jokes with Rose, memories and thoughts you shared with her.
