  1. So sorry to hear of Rose’s death. I would see Rose at the ballet and the opera as we sat in adjacent seats at the opera and in nearby rows at the ballet. I always enjoyed our chats about the production we were seeing and she told me that she always passed on our comments about the ballet to David McAllister, I think he referred to us, as “the crew”. I well remember the time we were leaving the theatre and David got in the lift with us and the mutual pleasure they had in meeting one another. Rose thought he would be disappointed in seeing her, nothing could of been further from the truth. He told her that he posted her letters on the ballet noticeboard where all the dancers could read them. I was worried as I had not seen her for a long time that something might have happened. I am sure she will still be following the ballet. Condolences to all of her family and friends. I always think of her at the ballet and opera and will look out for Helen and the others at the ballet.
