I was doing the friend feed yesterday and saw that A-New-Tara passed away. I couldn't believe it. I thought it was a mistake and went to her page thinking that someone she knew passed away. I was going to leave a sympathy bouquet. Her son wrote a blog saying that Tara passed away last Saturday night unexpectedly. The family was shocked by the sudden passing.
I couldn't believe it and just yelled OMG no and the tears started rolling down my checks. She was a very special person. She was always there with a kind word, a gentle push and a
. She commented on all my blogs and always had kind words for me. I don't know why but she looked up to me and sometimes would mail me asking for advice on eating or exercising. Everyone loved Tara. She had a great sense of humor which came out in her posts and blogs quite a bit. She was also a very spiritual woman and loved her son very much and was very very proud of him. We would exchange mails about our sons. They are only a few years apart mine being older and not wiser. She became a leader of the Weekly Challenges Team. Every Friday she would post a Friday silliness thread which was always fun to do. Last Friday she missed it and I figured she was still recovering from the car accident.
December 31 Tara was in a terrible car accident with her son on the way to work. She suffered broken ribs and was in the hospital until the middle of January. Everyone was quite concerned and relieved when we learned what happened but that she was alright, home and on the mend. I don't know if her death was a result of complications from the accident or what. All I know is that I am going to miss my friend a lot. She was only 50 doing great looking great happy and taken from us too soon. My heart is broken for her son, for her family and for her spark family. Tara, I will miss you, I love you, and I do take comfort in knowing that you are in the arms of the Lord now. Say hi to my Dad for me. Look after all of your family and your spark family and know that we love you.
