And here's Cady Gray's view of the situation, copiously illustrated. It perfectly captures that brave face she put on every time she thought of Rose.
My lost frend
By Cady Gray Murray
My favorite stuffed animal named Rose is lost. She has been lost a long time and she still hasn't shown up yet. I am getting worried about her.
We do not look for Rose. We try to find her while we're doing something else.
We have still not found her even when the cleaner came. I sure do hope we find her soon!
