We lost a sunflower a few days back … Tina has gone to rest.

She brightened our days during the 2014 April A-Z Blog Challenge with her warm enthusiasm and cheery words. I felt comforted by her urging us along and not to give up. I could feel her warmth and kindness over the airwaves.

Tina, you will be sorely missed by all who knew you, whether close friends and family or the blogging community. You touched many lives.

To Tina’s family … our thoughts are with you at this very sad time. May her dear soul rest in peace and may you gain comfort knowing that she is home with the Lord.

  1. Thank you for sharing this beautiful remembrance. The blogging community was certainly expanded by the A to Z Challenge, where I also met you. I wish I had experienced the light so many of you have expressed in Tina but our paths never crossed. Still, I grow bright and sunny sunflowers and will reflect on them in relation to the light this supportive blogger shared with our community.

  2. Beautifully said, Susan, as you always do on deep, emotional subjects. Or any subject. Tina was a blogging friend, probably one of my very first blogging friends. A huge personality, very friendly, welcoming, helpful, everything anyone would want in a friend. Just a few days before I got the news, she commented on something I posted on FB, with her usual humor. I will miss he dearly.
