often we hear
of the death of a loved one
from family, friends, a phone call, sometimes an obituary
in blog land
it comes to us
usually in a written message, or in a friends post
sometimes this person is someone we know of personally
sometimes it is someone we have heard of
or have maybe seen
but haven't followed
in blog land

we feel an intimacy with our friends
that we visit with daily
passion, sensitivity, empathy, helplessness, sorrow

Tina will be truly missed in our blogging world.
I will remember Tina when I look back at her beautiful photos,
she has left many photograph memories that we can cherish."

this morning when I opened this post from
This is the quote at the beginning of her post.
