September 8, 2014



In Memory of Tina Downey {Life Is Good} the awesome A to Z Challenge Team is hosting a sunflower tribute on September 8, 2014 - Remembering Tina Downey.

Tina loved sunflowers. I can't think of a more beautiful flower or one that represent the beauty of everlasting life and love. How appropriate that Tina was so drawn to their beauty.







The A to Z team is asking each of us to purchase or plant a sunflower, prior to September 8th, and to share a photo in a post on September 8th, in Tina's memory. The goal is to splash the blogging world with sunflowers that day and honor such an awesome woman who meant a great deal to so many of us. Let's honor Tina and share with the world how much she brightened our lives and spread the warmth of sunshine and friendship to all whom came in contact with her.

If you knew Tina, then you know that that she is looking down on the rest of us and hoping we remember her motto, #lifeisgood. Life is good and this is a time for all us to reflect on how good our lives are and honor a remarkable woman who continued to share her goodwill & spirit no matter how she felt. She saw the beauty in life and we can pay tribute to her by carrying on in her memory. 

Losing a friend or acquaintance is always difficult. I never knew how hard it would be to lose a friend I'd only met on-line. 

Please take a photo of your sunflower and share it on your blog on September 8, 2014, along with any special memory or story about Tina. My heart goes out to her family. God bless you!

Tina struggled with Pulmonary Hypertension and passed away on August 23, 2014. She will be missed.

A special thanks to the folks over on the A to Z challenge, for hosting this wonderful memorial for Tina.

Thank you Alex Cavanaugh for your "Goodbye Dear Friend," tribute to Tina.

I'm certain that many more of you have equally wonderful and touching stories and tributes on your blogs and I hope I have the opportunity to read all of them.

God bless you Tina Downey and may you forever have the beauty of sunflowers within your reach.


Have any of you experienced the death of a blogger friend?


Have you given much thought to what will become of your blog if you were to pass away, unexpectedly? I know it sounds morbid, but this is probably a topic that bloggers should discuss with their next of kin or significant other.

I hope you all had a Happy Labor Day and  I look forward to seeing your sunflower photos and reading your parting words to a blogger who was a huge part of so many of your lives.

Take care, all.

  1. Hi Melissa - it is very sad about Tina .. and I'm geared up for Monday and will get some sunflowers to lighten the room, remind me of Tina .. and bring some joy to a friend in the Nursing Centre. Tina's death is the one that has resonated ... but as in life there will always be others who go too early .. Hilary

  5. THANK YOU that was very good tribute... it's hard when anyone dies. it's harder when it's not expected. I had talked with Tina briefly on the day before her surgery... she had high spirits as always. I wished her well, said goodbye and I wish I knew it was the last time... I would have said more or say thank you for all that she had done in my world. So it's always good to say only good things to people, you may never know... thank you.
