It was about 5:30 this morning when I read Rick’s blog about the tragedy that has struck down our fellow RV & Blogger friends, MARGIE & BRUCE. That was about 6 hours ago & as I sit here in a Cyber Café in Wingham Ontario I am still in a state of shock & disbelief. All morning my mind has been returning to Margie’s posts over the past year & both her & Bruce’s emails. I am remembering her positive attitude with life. I am remembering many of her writings & her ability to speak her mind when needed. Many of her post’s were educational as she took us from place to place. Her writings were filled with hope & the absolute joy they were having as full time RVing blogger folks. It was easy to see their love of life through her photos & daily posts. Margie & Bruce’s dedication to their Grandchildren was especially evident this past summer.
We never met Margie & Bruce but one doesn’t have to meet someone to miss them. Our tight knit little blogging community out here is like family. We have our differences & we have our minor squabbles from time to time but it is nevertheless, family. I feel much closer to my friends here on the blog than I do to many people I actually know here at home. Margie & Bruce were instrumental in keeping this family together through her writings. And for that I will always be grateful to them.
Margie was generally the first commenter on my blog many nights & I would always look for her. I am going to miss that. And, I am going to miss reading Bruce & Margie’s Full Time Journey every day.
My heart goes out to the family & little dog, Annie. It will be a new day’s dawning now for all of them. A page has been turned, a chapter ended, but the book of Margie & Bruce’s life will live on through her many writings & photos. We will always remember you. Take care & keep that big rig rolling in search of new sunrises & sunsets. Take care guys……… Al & The Bayfield Bunch
