The loss of a blogging friend.

The members of the The Outlawz Design Teams found out today that one of our sisters had passed on unexpectedly.  It was very sad news to hear, especially for those of us who are on the Alcohol Markers DT as Linda was a part of our little team.  For me, The Outlawz was the first design team I joined and is the only social site of which I am a member and it truly does feel a great loss.
             As with any death, a number of feelings arise and a great deal of emotions are stirred.  Perhaps we remember past losses very close to us, perhaps we recognise our own mortality, maybe we resolve to live life to the fullest, whatever the personal emotions may be, our thoughts also go to the family of Linda and the immense loss they will be feeling.

          I didn't want to post my regular blog posts without acknowledging this sad news.  Although I only knew Linda through blogging, she came across as one of the kindest, most complimentary person ever - she only ever had praise and nice things to say and I for one, will miss her calming presence in blogland.

Sad to hear... sometimes things happen that you wonder why... She won't be gone, but still in your thoughts and still inspire you... Hugs, Gerrina

Such a wonderful sentiment, Dawn. :^)
I still cannot believe she is gone. Our DT just won't be the same without her.
Hugs, Penny
