Marija



I'm absolutely shell shocked at the news that this lovely lady, Marija from Holding Court, passed away July 10th in a car accident.

I was just leaving her a comment last night (our time), thinking how fabulous her blog is and what great posts she creates, and now this morning have read this very sad news. I loved getting to know Marija, and will miss her talent and humour.

Marija was always so warm and thoughtful, and quite obviously incredibly talented. But most of all, she adored her family. That was plain to see.

My heart goes out to them today. Such an incredibly sad loss.

Jules - I saw this this morning also and am quite upset by it. Accidents are truly horrible and to think that such a beautiful person (with hubby, kids, life etc) could be gone in a split second is just horrible. I left a message on her page too.

Beyond being incredibly talented and smart, she was a truly kind person.

I will miss her deeply, and my thoughts and prayers are with her family tonight.

It is beyond devastating to loose such a dear person as Marija. I counted her my friend and we exchanged long and lovely emails. I am shocked and just can't stop crying.
I went to church today and lit candles for her, Nigel, Olivija, Cory and her mother Mary.
I wish Australia wasn't so far away or I would fly over to attend the service on Saturday.

Thanks for this post.

I've never been to her blog but I just read it now and I'm so sad for them. I don't know what to say. Treasure every moment I guess. Thanks for this post.

I never knew this blog or heard of this woman but I just sat crying reading her husbands words....I just said last week life is so precious, you really have to enjoy every minute because you never know. May peace and light be with her family.

Gosh how awfully sad, I don't know her but it must be awful for her family to lose her so suddenly and in such terrible circumstances.

Thank you for the tribute.
