Eulogy for Rose’s funeral – Wednesday 19th October, 2016

Dear Rose,

I’m writing this letter as you left suddenly and there was still so much to be said. Not just by me. Lots of your friends have expressed sadness and regret that they didn’t get a chance to express how they felt. 

It’s funny isn’t it?    We have such strong feelings for each other but we adopt the attitude of ‘we can express that at another time, when it really counts!’ As in this case, often that time never comes.

Rose Curtis - A Memorial Paddle

A Cappucccino Run in Roses honour, has been organised by Alex leaving the FCC dock at 10am on the 22nd October.

It will be leisurely paddle down to Studley Park so bring a few dollars for coffee, some good yarns & jokes and a smile as Rose would expect us to enjoy ourselves.

Darebin Double Dippers’ tribute to Rose Curtis

It all started in 1996 when Rose went on a Rutherglen winery walkabout weekend with a mutual friend and suggested that she’d like to learn to kayak and do the Murray River marathon. Rose met Carolyn Dun, who knew Janice Lane who knew Louise Ray. Rose had been in a kayak before and knew which club to join, the Fairfield Canoe Club. It was the beginning of the Darebin Double Dippers.
