A Message to My Blog Friends

The tragic death of Margie and Bruce has made me realize how much my blogger friends have touched my life.

I am kind of surprised at the depth of the grief I feel with the passing of someone I never even met.

I just want to take this opportunity to let you all know how much you and your families mean to me, and I consider you friends.  I appreciate all of your comments and I appreciate the time you take to update us on your travels and your daily lives.  Thank you my friends.

I was so glad that Stephanie took the time during her terrible grief to let us all know what happened.  Can you imagine if she had just quit posting and we never knew where she was?   It must have been a very difficult post to write.  She must have known how much her Mother touched all of our lives.  I'll bet she knows even more now, with all the comments that are being left.


  1. A very nice post and much appreciated. Sadly it sometimes takes tragedy to remind us how much we all mean to each other.

  2. I agree, sometimes we take for granted that the people we talk to are going to be there tomorrow.

    This is a wake up call for sure.

    Be safe out there.

  3. You are right when you say how surprising it is to feel the loss of someone that we have never met. With our bloggling we learn so much about each other that we just naturally become friends without ever really noticing it happen.

    Our thoughts go out to Stephanie and her family for their sad loss.

  4. It sure puts our own lives into perspective. Things we take for granted can change in a flash. We will all learn something from this senseless tragedy and maybe that will be Margie's last gift to us all.

  5. It was also a bit of a surprise how saddened we were by the loss of folks we have never met, but who we felt we knew so well from their blog.

    Perhaps this connection is what makes blogging so compelling.

  6. I am at a loss for words and am stunned by this tragic news. I certainly can agree with you on how they were just like family to us.

  7. Very well said as we sat here today and keep saying to each other what a selfish cinceless tragedy.

  8. Karen, this is tragic and I can't imagine what their family members are going thru at this time. I worry about DeWayne because he walks three times a day, sometimes in walmart parking lots, etc. Since reading this, I've reminded him to be extra careful. And we love Schnauzers and sold puppies for three years. Thanks for passing this on. It DOES serve to remind us of our friendships with fellow bloggers. Take care, my friend.

  9. We are all interwoven by blogging. We do get to know each other and yes it does hurt. Remember how special each day is and give thanks for it.
