Thinking of the family As she continues to rest

Me and Rose dated last year around this time. She was always sweet and caring and very talented. She's given me great memories that I will never forget. My only regret is that I wish we had ended our relationship on better terms. I lost contact with Rose after we ended our relationship. I actually didn't find out the very sad news til 2 days ago when I decided to try and catch up with her. I was and still am having a difficult time with the news. I love you, Rose. You were a great person. I hope you know that.

We will miss Marisa Rose so very much. When she smiled the whole world lit up. Although distance kept us from seeing her as often as we would have liked the times we did spend together will always be very special moments in time for us. We love you so much Marisa Rose and we can't to have you in our arms again in heaven.

My beautiful baby sister. I think about you everyday, your name echos in my head from the moment I wake up to the the moment I go to sleep. I cling to my precious memories of you. I am overcome with sadness knowing I wont be able to talk to you, laugh with you, hold you again. I love and miss you so much.

My beautiful baby girl. Inside and out. She was so amazing in every way. I look forward to the day we reunite in heaven.

I met Rose online and never had the chance to know her in real life but she was an incredible friend and person. She was so kind and always made me smile. She was super talented and as someone that also plays guitar I loved chatting with her about music. My deepest condolences go out to Rose's family and friends. Love, Malcolm.

Rose was and always will be one of the most beautiful, kind, and caring people I will ever have the honour of meeting, and I am so lucky to be able to call someone as special as her my best friend. She never failed to put a smile on my face, and she was incredibly talented at anything she ever put her mind to.
My love and condolences go out to all of her family and friends, I am so sorry for your loss.
I love you, Rose, and I will miss you so much! May you find only happiness and joy wherever you may be now, and may you forever rest peacefully.
