Dear Marija,


 I only knew you through our shared emails,
comments and your own witty and wonderful posts.

You were the first friend I met from "blogging".

There were days when your encouraging 
and sweet emails literally lifted my spirits.

You and your beautiful family are in my prayers.

I will miss you very much my friend.

  16. I didn't know Marija at all but this tragedy has really touched my heart. It is one of the cruelest things for children to lose their mother. It's unbearable to think of, I really hope they're all ok and I'm sorry you lost a dear friend..Rachaelxx

  19. This is a nightmare, isn't it? I have talked with my husband ( because sometimes he likes to make fun of my blogging world) what he would do if i die suddenly. To have made this post for his wife is a true sign of hisultimate love for her. And YOU are a great friend to have made this post. XX

  22. This is so tragic, I don't even know what to say =(

    ReplyDelete
  23. I feel the same. I can't stop crying. I feel devastated.
    I can't grasp what it is like for her family. The kids.. It is beyond cruel and feels so unfair that a happy, vibrant and loving person like Marija would be taken so soon.
    I have lit candles for her and her family at church. I wish I could do more. I loved her.
