Margie and Bruce

I read about the passing of Margie and Bruce from a senseless accident in Pismo Beach.  But somehow I had missed their blog as it wasn't on my reader list.  I'm not sure how that happened, since almost all of the folks that I do follow seem to know this couple.

Of course this is the most tragic of an accident, that was reported to be intentional on the part of the young driver that was culpable.  I can't begin to understand what would go thru a human's mind to cause such a trauma!

Interested, if I had had any contact with Margie, the blogger of the family, I began to look back in my comments to see if she had left any thoughts.  And low and behold, on the day that I awoke after the surgery, one of the well wishers was Margie!  She evidentially read my blog at times!  And I see she had recently become a follower in my list.

This is almost spooky, as she is wishing me to speedy recovery, not knowing what her future would bring.  I am at a loss for words.

We can only hope that the family will recover from such a tragedy and send our best wishes to the survivors.   May God be with them!

So we need to lead our lives as though tomorrow will be our last day on earth, as difficult as that may be.  Because it may just be.

  1. You are so right Rod. I am still reeling from this today. As everyone has been saying we are all a family and care very deeply for one an other. I hope your recovery in still going well and look forward to seeing you and Loyce down the road. And to Heck with it you can have a whole dish of apple crisp next time. lol

  2. So true, Rod. I think that is part of the shock from yesterday's tragic news - the underlying feeling that this could have happened to any of us.

  3. You just never know what's going to happen today, tomorrow or next week. That's why we should all live our days to the fullest.

    I'm glad we had our five years on the road. We saw some amazing places and I'll miss it especially in the middle of winter but it's good we did it while we had the chance.

  4. This has truly turned out to be a very sad day for many of us,

  5. it is a very sad day indeed..take care of yourself Rod..Bruce and Margie would have wanted that!!
