Yet another day to post our worries, fears, doubts along with the suggestions helps etc on every month’s first Wednesday.


The brain child of Alex J. Cavanaugh the Ninja Captain, one of the founding members of the famous A to Z blog Challenge.


I never thought that this month’s post will be a tribute to a beloved friend among us.  But God the Almighty had a different purpose in each thing happen in our life.

Here I am talking about the sudden demise of one of my beloved fellow bloggers in the blogsphere.  Tina Downey the co-host of the famous A to Z blog challenge (the brain child of Arlee Bird).  She was very active in these columns too till recently.


Though she was suffering and was in treatment for different kinds of ailments she was discharged from the hospital and was recuperating but the God has a different purpose in the life of Tina. It has pleased the Lord to take her to His heavenly abode on the 23rd of August 2014


My acquaintance with Tina has started in the year 2012 and we were very good communicators in regard to the blogging and other writings, especially in connection with the A to Z blog challenge in the year 2013.  she selected me as one of her minions in her team and I was much elated  by the selection and I  accepted her offer and I worked under her in the year  2013 A to Z Blog challenge all through.  That was indeed a great experience and I was very much indebted to her for that offer.  Oh my… her instructions through the mail were so pleasant and I never had such an experience with anyone.  We discussed some spiritual aspects too in her busy schedule and her encouraging words were really thought provoking and uplifting.  She even agreed to do a Guest post for my newly designed webpage, but meanwhile she  was going through different ailments but still her presence were all around in the blogsphere especially in A to Z pages.  She was indeed touched the life of many through her activities in and around the blogsphere.  Her departure is a great loss to many who had acquaintance with her.  Personally speaking its indeed a great loss to me.


I am sure if anyone come across with Tina would have experienced her deep concern for others and their betterment.  We the group members at A to Z as well as IWSG lost a beloved and active member.  Indeed a great loss to the blogging world especially to A to Z and IWSG.


I express my deep sorrow and condolences to the Engineer (Tina address her husband with this word) and the beloved two kids.


May the Heavenly Father comfort and console them with His peace.

Though we all miss such a loving friend on this earth, as  Arlee Bird, the founder of A to Z Blog Challenge said, we will meet her one day face to face in the heavenly abode.

Tina too had such great faith and hope in her life.  In one of our conversations she expressed her wonderful and great faith in the God Almighty.

Let us also have this hope in our life and go forward.
