*In mourning for a fellow blogger: Tina, AKA EG*

It's terribly sad to hear of the sudden death of Tina and her husband last Monday, Feb. 22nd. It's been a terrible time for incidents in Ontario, on the roads and semi-frozen lakes. It reminds me to enjoy every day.

Here is the link to her final post, predated for Feb. 23rd, the day after her sudden death. Tina lived in East Gwillimbury is located just north of Toronto, where I was born, and lived for 25 years.

I loved Tina's posts, since she visited a lot of the Ontario places for which I have fond memories, especially Central Ontario (Muskoka). 

Tina wrote a wonderful blog with terrific photos.

William Kendall, another blogger, found the funeral home handling Tina (Christine/EG) and Thomas Forrester's funeral arrangements:

The blogging community is heartbroken. I cannot tell you how much Tina, AKA EG, will be missed. Many of us have enjoyed her photoblog. Many are posting tributes on their blogs, as well as on Facebook.

*Where can a man better be than with his family?* * Jean Francois Marmontel* This has been a difficult week. We in Blogland have lost another talented beautiful soul. We add that to the list of many talented beautiful souls that have been lost in our world since my first year of blogging. This is hard, oh so very hard. It is true that we may, or may not have met any of these people. We spilled our most precious of thoughts, shared our most precious of moments, and we loved them like they were family. A huge piece of our lives, which may seem in... more »

Before getting started today, some of you already know this, but for others, many of you know Tina, aka East Gwillimbury Camera Girl. She's been a photoblogger and regular visitor to many blogs. I'm sad to say that earlier this week she and her husband died in a car accident in southern Ontario. It's a shock to all of us who knew her through her blog, and all the more so to their family and close friends.  more »

It was such shocking and sad news to read about Tina and Tom. I loved the photos on her blog, lots of them from childhood memories of mine. Both Tina and I were working on an alphabet project and I got lots of inspiration from the photos she found in nature.

Spotted this news at another blog - was aware of Tina, but somehow never got to 'reside' at her blog... this is tragic news though. We must guard every minute... YAM xx

Oh I didn't know this has happened. I did follow her blog. How sad.

I was so shocked to read about this sad news on Eileen's blog (where I happened to read it first). Tina was such a good photographer and blogger and when I went on Email this morning I found three comments from her on my last week's posts that I hadn't erased yet. That made me so sad. It really makes you think to not take life for granted.

I see that a lot of bloggers knew Tina. I'm sorry I hadn't met her. I've seen that she was an amazing photographer as well. This is so sad.

Hilary said...

There's a big hole in our blogging community. She was such a lovely person and talented photographer. Thanks for linking to other tributes.
