for you bumpkin.

{Lisa's swing}
We'll miss you Bumpkin. You were a compassionate and amazing woman. We were all lucky to have known you. I know you're swinging in your swing, watching over Captain John & your entire family.

To all my blogging pals.... losing one of us drives home the realization that what we have here is real. We're shoulders to lean on, sounding boards, and most importantly friends. Thank you for reading each day, for all of your comments, and for your friendship.We're pretty lucky aren't we?   

xoxo

We are. I was so sad to hear about this loss. It was hard for me to explain to people in my RL why I was sad about someone I never met but, felt like I knew. This blogging thing is much bigger than just our blogs and blog rolls. Thinking of everyone as they think of bumpkin and her captain.

Oh Morgan, we really ARE lucky! So blessed. How did we manage to find one another?? I have no idea, but it's beautiful and I love every second of it.

Every time I see a swing I'm going to think of Lisa. Gosh, I'm gonna miss her....

It's strange and amazing how we can feel such a strong connection to almost total strangers.

I had never read her blog, but heard of the tribute and went over. It's so sad & tragic. She seems like such a beautiful person.

That is so sad :(

We are definately lucky to find connections with people we would have never met any other way.

It is amazing the connections we make here. Friendships I never could have imagined.

We'll miss Lisa so very much, but I can only imagine her in her swing, smiling at all of us.

Morgan, you couldn't have said it any better. This little world of ours is a special, special place. Lisa was one of those people who made it that way.

I am in complete shock! I said my prayers for Lisa not knowing how sick she was, thinking she would return in a day or so. We all need to remember her strength and passion to do the right thing.
