ROOB-blog inactive till further notice



Realms On Our Bookshelves is in mourning due to the extremely unexpected passing away, last Monday, of the husband of our founding member Leontine.

Until further notice there will be no updates or posts as we try and deal with this loss and unfairness that life has chosen to cast upon our dear friend and sister.

My Sympathy to Leontine. It is so hard to understand when someone we love is taken from us far too soon. I can promise you that the grief you feel now does get better. It takes a lot of time and many tears, but it does get better.

Monica Burns said...

As a writer, these type of heart-wrenching events leave me at a loss as to what to say.

I can only say what its in my heart. I believe that there is a reason for things like this that happen. I also believe that we can't see that reason, nor do we want to at a time like this. But one thing I do know most certainly from experience is this. The heartache will always be there, but in time is will ease and you will remember the wonderful moments, the beautiful times of loving and sharing. The bittersweet will be softened by the knowledge that he will always be alive as long as there's someone to remember him and think of him. His physical presence might be gone but all that he was lies within each life he touched.

You're in my heart and I am sending all the healing light of the Creator's love your way. May he/she hold you close to ease the pain of your loss.

Monica

Natascha said...

Hello all,

Thank you all so much for your wonderful healing words and sympathies so far. Though Leontine is, as you all can imagine, completely lost and broken, I wanted to let you all know that your messages are being brought to her through me.

We are trying our best to help her through this and grief the loss of her husband ourselves as well. Our whole family was shocked and still are in disbelieve.

Know that your messages are part of her and our healing process. As soon as Leontine is up for it she will surely type a message as well, this however might take a while yet.

Warm wishes to you all,

Love
Natascha

I've previously sent my love to Leontine on her blog after her heartbreaking post.

I came here to give thanks and to send strength to the three ladies that are the closest to our friend and that you give her the love that we thousands of miles away cannot.

Thank you.

Hugs, Ashley
