So Rosi, another birthday remembered and another year of missing a true friend. The time has gone so quickly and I can't quite believe that all those years have passed. Every year I am reminded of the value of true friendship (and who lucky I was to have had you as my friend) and of how precious every day is. Thank you for reminding me of both of these, today and every day. Celebrate BIG,
Lisa xx

10 years ago today we celebrated your 46th birthday with a flight on Edwin's plane through a stunning blue sky to Fermanagh for lunch. It was an incredible day and typical of you to do everything in style - and then some!
It seems incredible that it's 10 years ago and that we've been without you for 9 of those, and yet I can still hear your laugh and hear you taking the piss at every opportunity!
I miss you my friend - but the thought of days like that can still make me smile through my tears. Happy birthday xx

Yesterday was the 9th anniversary of the day we said goodbye to you my friend. There are days when I can still hear your voice and it seems incredible that it could really be 9 years since I heard it out loud. But seeing everyone's tributes and sharing memories yesterday remind me that of course you were never going to be forgotten! Not Rosi! You made your mark on this world in a way that will never be forgotten and I hope I am living up to what you asked me to do and keeping up the amazing work you started with Bowel Cancer UK to keep your legacy alive. I miss you, but so often you bring a smile to my face just thinking about you. Love always xx

Dear Rosi, share a glass with Peter to celebrate your birthday. There is so much sadness for those of us who are left behind to have lost both you and Peter so young. There are so many good times to remember and lots of parties and stories...i am remembering Titwobble lane in Wedderburn; "What happened...did i fall off a horse?" in Namurkha; "Are you Irish, I'll kiss you!" in Downings, body surfing at the rugby-club formal.....and many many more good times. You were always great fun but FULL of kindness and generosity and greatly missed. Happy Birthday my friend. xx

Look after Peter for me Rosi ❤️

The Portrush putter that Peter created in your memory is now going to be The Peter and Rosi Kirker memorial trophy.
We a will be holding an event each year at Peters Golf Club and will continue to raise money for charity. We will continue to support Bowel Cancer but we will now set up a foundation in Peters memory to support GP’s health and heart research to continue his legacy also.
We Think he would like that.
Erin, Alec and I miss him terribly but know he will be looking down on us and saying “dry yer eyes” xx

Here we are again my lovely friend - on what would have been your 55th birthday. I've seen both your boys within the past week and was telling them stories of the parties we used to have - they were very impressed! Oh how I wish we were going out together to celebrate tonight.
So poignant when I look back over these posts and see so many from Peter - so tragic for us that he has joined you, I hope you two are on the pints somewhere together xxx

Rosi, here we are again after another year. Time passes so quickly and when I realise that it is 8 years already, it makes me think how important it is to treasure every moment and every day with the ones we love. Miss you. Lisa

Every year on the 6th April in Australia I wake up on my birthday and then pause to reflect that it is the 5th of April in the UK and the anniversary of your passing. It makes me reflect on how special every birthday is and wish that you were here having birthdays and celebrating all the wonderful achievements of your boys. Martin has raised them so well - you would be proud. I’ll raise a glass at lunch today as we are going to the Cerberus where you and the boys and Wendy spent time with us - a place that holds many special memories. Cheers Rosi xx

Dear Rose- another birthday and another year that you are missed. I saw a photo of your amazing boys yesterday- what a credit they are to you and Martin. I still think of them as little boys- it is like time has stood still since you left. I would love to be toasting with you today but here’s cheers Rosi x

Another year on and another birthday we missed celebrating together my amazing friend. I've encouraged so many of my friends to make the most of their birthdays - so many think they don't want to celebrate getting old, but we all need to remind ourselves that you didn't get to be this age and I know that you would be outraged at anyone not celebrating when they have the chance.
Oh Rosi - I still miss you so much and sometimes I just crave that laugh. Happy Birthday old girl xx

Late tribute here as I couldn't seem to get access from USA on the actual anniversary - made me smile when I thought you'd have sorted that out in a jiffy Rosi and, if not, then you'd have had a damn good rant about it!
I cannot believe it's been 7 years and as I took time on the 5th to tune into some memories I realised it wasn't very hard as I can still hear your laugh and your voice without even trying. Lovely as that is, it still brings tears to my eyes to know that I can't simply give you a call and arrange a glass of wine (or 7!) and I still desperately miss those on-our-way-to-work conversations on our hands-free (weren't we the girls?!) just to get us through the stressful early starts as exhausted working mothers! I miss you every day xxx

Rosie, the time may have passed but our memories are as strong as ever. Spent St Patricks Day with Lush in France and we chatted and reminisced about the many good times we had with you. Always remembered as are Martin and your boys. Lexie xxx

Thinking of you Rosi.... Your name still pops up in conversations frequently. You are remembered and missed today and every day. Lisa
Posted by Janet Kirker on April 5, 2018
It’s hard to believe it is 7 years since you left us. You are still talked about by so many here in Australia and how you made us all smile.
Your boys are a credit to you Rosi. How I wish you could see what fine young men they have become. ❤️I will raise a glass to you tonight

Big happy birthday to you Rosi! I remember fondly a birthday part of yours in Melbourne...I think you were 30.... lots of laughs, lots of fun and of course, lots of mischief. Love always, Lisa
Posted by Dorcas Crawford on October 30, 2017
So - today would have been your 53rd birthday - the date each year when you'd catch me up. Oh how I wish we could have a few glasses (only ever a few!) together to celebrate today.
I miss you as much as ever and long for those laughs - there were so many! xx

Seems like only yesterday we sat chatting in your living room Rosi. You are thought of often and still sadly missed. Lexie xxx

Rosi, wee Erin now 21 visited NI this weekend. You could not be prouder of your boys and never a day goes by when we think about the influence you had on them and all of us. Forever in our hearts xx ☘️☘️

Smiling for you today and always Rosi xx
Posted by Dorcas Crawford on April 5, 2016
Five years - so hard to believe. I can still see you laughing and hear your voice so clearly sometimes that it seems you're not gone at all. Then I remember - and still the pain of losing you stings my heart and my eyes.
But you live on in so many ways - not least in your great legacy - your inspiration to keep doing the work for Bowel Cancer UK and I know you'll be with us at our big fundraiser this month - the Cathedral Quarter Bake Off - cakes - what more would you want! We'll have a special one for you xxx

Another year without you my lovely friend and still you go on inspiring me to keep up your work and to give others a better chance than you had. Someone asked me the other day if I had to pick a woman I was inspired by who would it be? I didn't have far to look - there you were smiling at me across my desk from the photo of our last big night out together - neither of us too sober! I miss you Rosi xx

Dear Rosi, still missing your big wide smile and sparkling eyes, your big joyful laugh and a great friend.

Today we got a puppy and Erin and Alec called her Rosi - a lovely and beautiful soul like you and very cheeky!!!!
She will remind us of you always. xx

Lovely Rosi - I left a note on your magnolia tree in our garden on the day of your anniversary but thought I'd add one here now as well. You are never far from my thoughts and I keep finding people and things that happen because of you. I am convinced you left us a treasure trail to help us all cope with missing you. Wonderful as that is - having you around was so much better - wish you were here xx

It is 3 years since we celebrated your last birthday with that amazing flight to Enniskillen for lunch - a bucket list event if ever there was one! I miss you more as time goes on and just long for your company - not a day foes by without thinking of you my lovely friend.
Posted by Lisa Hogg on October 30, 2013
Hi Rosi,
as always, thinking of you today on your birthday. I always have a very strong sense that you are around, keeping us all on the right track. I have man, many things that still make me smile. Thanks for those lovely memories. Lisa

Today would have been Rosi's 48th birthday. The beautiful rose in this tribute is called a Rosemary Rose and we planted this special rose in a wee memorial garden in our home. Today,our first few Rosemary Roses came out in flower on a beautiful 30 degree day in Melbourne.
She is constantly in our thoughts and forever with us. Janet Kirker
