I lost my friend Rosemary Fuller. By Geniusofdespair

It was a cold day at this rally for Daniella Levine's campaign. Rosemary was a supporter.

Her beloved son, Robert (my surrogate brother) called me last night to tell me that, Former Miami Dade County Principal, Rosemary Fuller had died. I am heartbroken. She was so loving to me. I told her I missed my mother and she said she would be my mother. I called her "mom" whenever we spoke. Such a great lady. I love you Rosemary. I am so sorry little bro Robert. You were her joy.

Rosemary Fuller will be missed. An outstanding person who served the community in so many ways. She was a fixture of Perrine Elementary. She served Palmetto Bay as a member of one of our Advisory Committees (beginning 2003). She assisted me with the startup of our traditional Palmetto Bay/Principals breakfast where we formulated our Village / School partnerships. There is so, so much I could say about her – all good.

She remained active in the community well after her retirement. We occasionally ran into each other at Palmetto Bay Business Association and other events held in South Miami-Dade County.

She will be missed both my me and so many others. My condolences to both her personal family as well as all those in the community who were part of her community family. A great loss in 2016.

Rest In Peace Principal Fuller.

It is said that a civilization grows wise when old people plant trees whose shade they will never sit under. Teachers are like that. They plant knowledge in the minds of children and may never see the full fruits of their labor. Education is the fullest measure of faith in the future. Perrine Elementary is an integral part of the Palmetto Bay community. It's just around the corner from my house. Mrs. Fuller led it for years with a fierce determination and an unwaivering love for her students, their families, and her staff. May she be at peace, having touched so many minds and hearts.

She's my Granny, and I miss her so much. When we lost Grandpa a few years back, I was really sad, so was my dad, Robert. On that day I saw something I never wanted to see again. But on the 27th of December, I saw it again, I saw my daddy cry.

Rosemary Fuller was a strong advocate for her community, her students and families. I first met her when I was State Representative for the South Dade District 119 from 2000-2002 and she was the Principal at Perrine Elem. She welcomed and engaged elected officials and community leaders, and was herself a strong leader, and continued to do so even in her retirement. My condolences to her family, her legacy will live on.

I too celebrate the life and loves of Rosemary Fuller, an extraordinary woman who shared her gifts with our community so generously and made life better for so many. I had the great fortune to get to know her as a person of special insight, passion and wit. She knew the inside story and was not afraid to fight for the right. Thank you Rosemary. You will be missed!

My cousin Rosemary was an exceedingly kind and passionate person. We shall all miss her tremendously. She has enriched many during her time here in this life. She will continue to inspire us all.
