Sad Finding

I just found out through my blog friend DinahSoar that another blogger has passed away in a tragic accident. Sadly, this happened several months ago and while I'd noticed she had not updated her blog, I didn't find out until now that she was gone. Margie M, of My Healthy Living Thru Weight Control, was out for a morning walk with her beloved husband Bruce on October 16, 2010, when they were struck by a car and killed. Margie was a very kind person and encouraged me here on my blog since 2009. Her words remain as a testament to her loving spirit. I am so sorry she is gone.

Please take a moment today to go over to her blog and read her final words to us. She left us a bit of wisdom just two days before she passed. Honor her memory by taking something from her words to heart.

Margie, you will be missed.

Oh, how awful :( I just went over and read her last post and it truly was beautiful and very wise. I wish I had found her sooner but I will go back through her old posts now. So sorry for the loss of your friend, Lyn, and thank you for letting us all know as well so we can go pay honor at her site. So sorry again.

I remember reading about this in the news. Very sad but her last post was wonderful. She left a lovely gift for behind for all to share.

Hugs to you today!

Forgive me for saying this, but after losing two dear friends to years of suffering in cancer hell, I'll just say glad they went together, and it was fast. She sounded like a lovely person, rest in peace to both of them.

I am SHOCKED. I "knew" Margie...from when she first started posting. We've encouraged each other via blogs and email. She was such a source of encouragement for me - and a few hours ago, I checked her blog to see what she was up to since I hadn't heard anything.

I can't believe this. I'm reeling from this - thank you for letting us know.

The blogging world is a world full of "familiar strangers"...I, too, read her blog, but had no idea what happened to her. Thanks for sharing the news.
