Gone too soon.................Prayers for Tobey

Well here I am again talking about someone's loved one leaving her all too soon.

Tobey from Tobey's Treasure lost her husband very very suddenly 2 weeks ago - he was only 56 and they
were about to start an exciting new phase in their lives - moving across the country from British Columbia to Ontario to be close to family and to find their dream farmhouse.

One moment the dreams were alive and palpable and oh so close to becoming a reality - and the next moment her beloved Brian was gone.

And I feel as heartbroken for her as I did for Pat ( Gypsy Heart & Soul ) when she lost her beloved granddaughter Abby.

These friendships we form through blogging are real - even though we will probably never meet more than 1 or 2 - intimate parts of our lives are revealed and sometimes connections - very deep connections are formed - intricately so.

Hearing this news broke my heart - please take a moment to visit her and offer your support through prayers or good wishes - or kind words - let's do our part to lift this broken angel back up as gently as we can - she has a tough road - a long tough road ahead of her.


Rest in Peace Brian
Rest in Heavenly Peace......................

  8. Thanks for letting us know Suzan. I left her a message, seems like such a small thing to do for such a huge hurt... I'll definitely keep her in prayer. So sad.

  11. Thank you my friend for thinking of me. God is certainly testing my strength this past month and asking me to bear the most heartbreaking event of my life. Brian and I had both been through failed marriages and had a lot of hurt in our lives before we met. I think that is why we loved and appreciated so much what we had found with each other. We had so much more we wanted to do in life together. I am still in shock and do not understand why he was taken from me. I know I have 7 years of such beautiful memories, but I wanted many more. I wanted to grow old with him. I feel so empty and so very lost right now. I know he would want me to be strong and go on and live my life the way we had planned. But that will take an energy and strength I do not have right now. Thank you all for your kind words and prayers, they mean so much too me. hugs Tobey
