We miss you BG!

Thank you Dickiebo for the picture!




It is with a heavy heart that I write this post.  As many of you horsey people know our good friend and fellow blogger Barn Goddess passed away recently.  It is a shock to all of us who knew her and I still can't really get my mind to accept such sad news.


Barn Goddess' blog Ramblings From the Reservation was one of the first blogs that I started to read back 3 or 4 years ago.  She cracked me up with all the goings on around her place with her darling son Wee One and her older son Bubba.  Throw in Marvin the cat and Scooter her old man of a horse and there were always stories to brighten your day.


BG as we called her could be a little rough around the edges at times, making this old gal blush, but told it like it was and had a heart of gold.  She loved her family beyond measure and her four legged kids as much too.  Her style of writing was so unique, she could say more in one short sentence then I could in a whole paragraph and you knew exactly what she meant.  She could hand back the quips as fast as you could dish them out and all in good fun.


Her horse was one of the bright spots in her life and although she didn't ride as much as she would have liked to when she did she liked to go like the wind!  Scooter was in his thirties and had myriad issues that she diligently cared for.  I learned so much about different feeds and supplements from her.  Scooter was one pampered horse.


I will miss her posts and e-mails so much.  I had hoped to meet her in person one day.  I feel blessed to have known her even though it was through cyberspace.  Rest in peace Lori, we all miss you!!!!!

She is a beautiful woman! I am so sorry that she has left this place...one day you will sit down in Heaven with her and the love will be there so strong and you will know her and she will know you. Hugs :D

So sorry to hear about the loss of your dear blogging friend. I didnt know her at all, but she looks like she was very young. That is so sad.

Needled Mom said...

Such a shame! I did not follow her, but she sounds like she was a great blogging friend. I know that she will be missed by her family in real life and her blogging family. Hugs.

I'm so sad for you MM. What a lovely tribute. Losing a friend is so very hard.

I've been negligent in my posting and reading lately. Am hoping to be better.

We are in the Pacific NW on vacation, having a fabulous time. I really needed this vacation.

I didn't know this lady, not being a horsey person. But she sounds like fun - I am sorry for her family and for her blogging buddies. She doesn't look very old!

Now I understand your silence this week.

It just does not seem possible. When I first read about Ramblin's passing, I thought that it was supposed to be a sick joke. Gosh. I can't believe it. I really can't!

What a beautiful tribute for a beautiful woman.
I did not follow her but I am sure that she will indeed be missed.
Hugs

You did a great job of chaptering the essence of our friend, MM. She was definitely all that.

I can't believe it either. If dickiebo hadn't contacted me I'd probably still be in the dark because I wasn't reading far enough down on the additional comments that were coming so I didn't see her sister's post.

I think it's going to take us all a while to wrap our minds around this one. It just makes no sense.

My heart aches for her family and for us, her blogging friends. I juat can't imagine a world without BG. So very sad.........

Oh I'm so sorry for your loss. Even though we are friends through cyberspace......we are still friends, & when you lose one of those friends there's still a void in your life. She sounds like an incredible woman!

Donna said...

Oh my goodness, I missed this. How did you find out?

ADB said...

I was not one of BG's readers, but feel sad at her passing. I shall link to your tribute from the Silent Keyboards blog.

Oh no, how very sad:-( She sounds like she was a wonderful person, my heart goes out to her family and friends. I remember when one of the gals I blogged with passed away, it was so shocking so I can understand how you're feeling. Sending big hugs to you across the miles. Love you. xoxoxoxox
