I’m posting today, as are a huge number of us, in honor of a blogging friend who I really only “knew” for a little over three months. Tina Downey passed a few weeks ago and is the first that I know of in “my” blogging community who has gone on. I didn’t know her as well as some others in this community, however from her passing I’ve learned so much about how she touched others whether they knew her well or not. And isn’t that one of the things we all hope for when we go? That others honor our passing, acknowledge what we meant to them when we were alive? A legacy of love. That's what I’m finding about Tina. She has left behind her a legacy of laughter, brightness, faith, and love. I hope that her husband and her sons will one day read at least some of the massive amounts of tributes being posted about her today and in the weeks past, and that these memorials will warm their hearts when they see how respected and loved she was in return for all she gave. So, as these were her favorite flowers, here are my sunflower photos in memory of Tina who shined brightly in so many lives. I am glad I knew her even a little.
