A few months ago, I wrote a post about my reasons for starting a blog. One of the primary reasons was because I had a desire to be a part of this community that I had learned so much about by reading the blogs of other rvers. One of the first blogs that I followed was that of Margie and Bruce. Margie had such an interesting style of writing and seemed to have a way of making everything fun to read about. I admired her dedication to illustrating her blog with photos, like on the day she took pictures while at a dentist appointment. But really, she could make an ordinary day, or a visit to McDonalds, seem vivid and real with her eye for detail and her no-nonsense way of saying it like it was. Her blog was always one of the ones I read first in the morning. Although I never met Margie, I really felt like I knew her. Which is why I felt shocked and saddened beyond words this afternoon to hear that Margie and Bruce had fallen victim to a tragic accident this morning which took both their lives. Margie and Bruce had such a great love for life – for their family, especially the “grands” as Margie called them, for travel and adventure, for living life to the fullest.
Rest in peace, Bruce and Margie. You will be missed.
