I read the blogs every day. I click on other people's blog roll to see what other people
are reading and find new things. I often happen upon a group of friends or people who
have become friends through blogging.
A few months ago, I started reading a blog called "Bumpkin on a Swing." It was a funny
blog that had a serious side...bumpkin's husband is a boat captain in coastal Louisiana.
There was a guest post on her blog this morning from her friend Trish...bumpkin has
passed away from ovarian cancer...she was 40 years old.
I did not know her in person, but felt I knew her through her blog. I am so sad and I
can't believe this happened so suddenly. My deepest sympathy to Capt. John and to
all of bumpkin's friends and family who loved her so much.
