In Memory of Rose Collins
April 23, 2016 1 Comment
It was great sadness that I learned my friend Rose Collins passed away earlier today. I met Rose through a mutual friend, indie developer David Walton. She’s the type of friend I liked to have: wise, no-bullshit, easy to converse, eager to share thoughts and ideas. I always found her to be incredibly insightful. She loved gaming, and would always send notes when I cracked her up with one of my lame jokes in my reviews. Or when she disagreed with one, which was often. She always had time for her friends, and always seemed to look on the bright side of bad situations.
Rose, I can’t believe you’re gone. I’ll always treasure your sage advice, and our friendship will always have a special place in my heart.
If anyone out there is ever feeling like they have no hope, please, reach out to someone. Anyone. Please, don’t hurt yourself. If you’re at your darkest point, there is help available 24/7, like the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at (800)-273-8255, or their website, which has a chat option.
-Catherine, or “Young’un” as Rose would call me.
