There Are NO Words…

When we first read about this tragedy, we were speechless. The shock was overwhelming, even for us who only knew Bruce and Margie through their blog. There were plans to meet up a few times but it just never happened and then their were other plans for the future. Do any of us know what the future holds?

Always having a tendency to search for some sort of brightness in any given situation, what we realized is that they died in a way that is calming for us. First, no warning and second they died together. We try not to dwell on death but it is inevitable and one day we will all face it. There could be no better way to leave this earth, then to be walking along, holding hands with the person you have spent most of your dreams and life with and in my story how it happened, they didn’t know what hit them.

The tears continue for the loss of two wonderful people. Margie’s wonderful posts on her blog and all of her genuine comments, not only on our blog but on others as well will be terribly missed. She had a knack for writing reviews of places they had visited that kept us all updated on places we might or might not want to visit in our travels.

We hope the family finds peace and their grieving does not consume them for too long!

This has given us an entirely new perspective on our lives. Again, it has opened our eyes on just how quickly our lives could end. Yes, this pumpkin patch is a great big pain in the ass, but the more we whine and complain about it, the worse it is getting. So we are once again living our lives as if this could be our last. We decided if we are that unhappy, we would leave, but we talked it out and decided that instead of leaving, we would just suck it up and make the best of this situation, after all, we only have 14 more days. But, for us that means no more whining about this or that, no more complaining about how bad we have it. What we need to look at is at least we have one more day to be on this earth and that is a spectacular moment…Life truly is exactly what you make of it and we plan to make every moment of every day the best damn time of our lives.

Thank you Bruce and Margie for allowing us to share your lives through your blog, you both will be truly missed.

What a wonderful tribute to Margie and Bruce you have written, Kimberly. I just can't seem to find the words. I am grieving, and I know their family is grieving even more than I am. I agree with you that the bright side is that they were doing what they loved, in one of their favorite places, and were doing it together, even at the end. They are at peace.

I put two and two together- what a tragedy. Hard to believe. And, what an opportunity for us to take stock like you have. What is really important? "Now" is the only moment we really have. Live it to the fullest and appreciate life and our loved ones.

Kimberly and Jerry

Thanks for your post about Bruce & Margie. Your thoughts were similar to mine that I wrote about this morning.

We are all grieving in some way over this senseless loss but as you Jerry state - there were doing what they enjoyed and were doing it together. We too commented that at least they are together ~ but that also means a double whammy to their children and grands...so hard for them. I too hope their grief does not consume them for long but they can remember their mom and dad, grandma and grandpa as the wonderful people they were.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
