Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around us...to touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

A Tragic Loss

 

                                                       

 

Words cannot express our feeling of loss.  Although we have never met Margie and Bruce, we considered them dear friends. Margie was usually the first to comment on our blog and always give encouragement.  They were devoted to family and helping where ever there were needs, and they had a love for life.  We are still in shock with this news and there is a big emptiness in our blogging family.  We will miss you Margie and Bruce.

Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go to the family, may God Bless.

Hello Mike and Geri,

My name is Leanne. Margie and Bruce were my former in-laws. I was married to their son, Dennis until 2006. I was reading some of the blogs that have been written by their friends and I just wanted to thank you for your kind words. Even though Dennis and I were divorced, I kept in touch with Margie and Bruce and loved them dearly. My heart is broken with this senseless tragedy.

Mike and Gerri, thank you for this post about Margie and Bruce. I am so sad. I already miss them so much. But reading what other bloggers have to say helps me realize that many are grieving, and most especially, let's continue in our prayers for Stephanie, Darrin, Dennis, Mackenzie, Zooey, and their other friends and family members.

This has been such a sad day. Although I never them met, I felt I knew them as I feel I knew many of our blogging family.

I still can't quite grasp the fact that they are gone. So senseless.

Well said. It's such a senseless tragedy it's hard to come up with words to describe it.

I too, am still in shock. I just got done reading the many posts on their blog...at that time there were 102 comments...evidence they were well loved and will surely be missed.

Thanks for putting this on your blog. I too, wrote about them and the many thoughts that have been going through my mind in the last 24 hours.

And as others have said, this is definitely a senseless tragedy.

Merri and Steve said...

Gerri thanks for the tribute! Your words describe it well. God Bless Bruce and Margie. RIP

This has just been such a harsh thing to grasp. That one day we are all sharing and reading each other's blogs, and now suddenly two lovely people are gone.

I feel so bad for their families... what a tragic loss.
