1958 - 2020
Dear Family and Friends,
It is with deep sadness that I announce that after a four year battle with ovarian cancer, which Roslyn fought valiantly and determinedly, she has fallen asleep for the last time and is now resting in peace.
Her next conscious thought will be in the loving arms of God her Saviour, in an eternal life of bliss and perfection beyond anything we can conceive or imagine.
Although I have had plenty of time to prepare for this moment, my grief is beyond description. My emotional wounds are deep.
Daniel is also taking it very hard.
Right until the end, she was true to herself - always thinking of others before herself, and retaining humour and passion even during the last stages of her life.
She was sure of her future destiny of eternal life with God because she trusted in the saving power of the risen Lord Jesus Christ. Her greatest sadness was for those she loved who could not share her belief.
A memorial service to celebrate the life of Roslyn was delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions until 29th November 2020.
Even so, the COVID-19 restrictions at the time of the service meant that most people who would have liked to have attended were not able to.
Singing by the congregation was not permitted, again because of COVID-19 restrictions, so I am so thankful for the skill and enthusiasm of my friend Geoff Chapman and my niece Jacqui Alldis, who arranged and performed the songs that Roslyn had chosen herself before she died.
You can view a video of the service recorded by my brother Richard in combination with a fixed camera.
You can also view a recording of the live stream that was made available at the time via YouTube.
