Moving on... on behalf of Tina Downey

On behalf of the Downey family, we want to let Tina's friends and followers know that she went to be with the Lord Saturday night, August 23rd.  As many of you know, Tina struggled each day with pulmonary hypertension and had been in and out of the hospital all year.  She was admitted Tuesday and appeared to be getting better.  Saturday evening she took a turn for the worse and doctors discovered she had sepsis. She fought valiantly but when they attempted dialysis, her body gave out.

We know how much you all meant to her and filled her life with joy every day.  We truly appreciate the special way each one of you brought significance and meaning to her life.  No arrangements have been made at this time.  We will provide updates as details are made known.

Sincerely,

Friends and Family of the Downeys

Tina, it's sad that you are no longer here with us. Sleep -- in the arms of an angel.

Tina always believed life's good. She definitely had that. I met her through IWSG. Sending prayers and love.

on my new Swedish-language blog, Tinord, I have posted some sunflowers as a tribute as well as linking to her blog, "Life is Good". I have also quoted from her "About"-page on this post.

I hope you don't mind.

Here's the link if you want to check it:

I am sorry for your loss.

Kind regards,

I didn't get to know Tina personally but she was a kind co-host in a challenge I participated in for my first time. She replied to one of my queries, and stopped by my blog once or twice, leaving a kinder comment. She chaired such a team of jolly mignons and I can only guess her loss is 'crushing'.I wish all those who mourn her, lots of grace and fondest memories to cling unto.

I knew Tina from the A-Z blogging challenge. I haven't blogged in over a year and it's come as shock that a fellow blogette has passed away. While our interactions were infrequent, her posts were entertaining and intersting.
Having lost my dad early this year, I can understand the pain and sadness you're going through.

My prayers for your family continue.

Sending wishes of peace and healing to each of you.

I am so sorry.

Hi Tina. I know you're gone from this place but I just wanted to tell you that you are missed.

And you mattered.

And you always made me think or smile.

Thank you.

It's the night before April A-Z. I know it's silly to comment, because probably no one will even see this, but just wanted to say we are missing you, Tina <3
