Thank you for all the messages, emails,poems and texts that we have received. I would like to share with you one of the nicest letters. Terry, my Dads best friend sent it. They all worked together in the TV studios in the good old days…
"The stride of a girl, blonde hair in a twirl, as she walked into our lives
I had her on camera in black and white, she turned our heads for she looked a great sight,
The new vision mixer, she was full of life, and set her sights to be my best friends wife.
She learned her trade and made it her own, whe was destined to sit on the global throne of the best there was,
Her name was Roz.
She was quicker than lightening, her cutting was heightening,
She made every show come to life…that was the girl, my best friends wife.
Roz and H both shaped my life and career, and many others, a directors savior, we all owe her our cheers.
We travelled afar as we plied our trade, Roz will be missed by thousands, all the friends she made.
Tears stream down my cheeks and a hole in my life…That was the girl, my best friends wife.
Roz, two children, a home and a heart of gold, she had it all by being so bold,
She wanted the best and by god she mad it.
Working all hours, she was in demand, she was never afraid to take command,
Mixing with fame or just talking with me, it was part of her life…
That was Rosalind, my best friends wife.
Forty odd years have passed us by, but not the memories that make me cry,
For those I shall cherish until I die.
Right ‘til the end she fought it out, never a cry or ne’er a shout
Roz still cut her way to the very end of her life…
That was the girl, my best friends wife.
May we meet again in a world beyond, for I believe, of those we are fond,
Will be waiting to meet us just as before, waiting to show us there is still more.
Meanwhile we here have to go on, living and giving for the rest of our life
Thank you Rosalind, a friend forever,
and my best friends wife."
This Saturdays British edition of 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire' will be dedicated to Mum. She worked on it from the beginning up until this September.
Mum toured Mexico and Australia with U2. She was nominated for a Grammy and an Emmy. She managed to hold a conversation with Michael Jackson while part of his nose fell off. She chatted to Johnny Depp in his club in LA, and Prince in Paisley park, she was with Pink Floyd in Berlin when the wall came down. She was always there for her family and our friends. My friends and my brothers friends would always turn to her for help and advice.
She was one in a million and I love her very much.
