The Loss of a Blogging Friend

I just  do not know what to say. Her death was so unexpected. I hope you can understand what I can't put into words. I am deeply saddened by the loss we both shared as bloggers.
  Friends, we have lost a Sister blogger, Cynthia Fox-Giddeons

Her blog is ;  Simply Positive, is the name if you have trouble with this link. Please, will you go there and leave condolences for her family? I know every word will be deeply appreciated. Please post on your blog for your followers to do the same!
  I considered myself fortunate to have known Cynthia. She was a delightful young woman who always had a kind word to convey to others.

She lost her husband and lived alone in Atlanta. Her brother posted on Twitter of her being missing for two days. Then found, and was told she died of natural causes. Just recently, she lost an elderly gent for whom she'd befriend and grown to admire. His passing was sudden, and left her deeply saddened.

Cynthia also lost her beloved pet Coale. 

To Her Family...I so wish I had word to lighten the pangs of distress you are experiencing. However, we know words just are not enough. Pleas accept our deepest condolences on your loss.
  We will all miss Cynthia. You have my deepest sympathy. 
Please know...Our sympathy is with you all in this your time of grieving...
                         "I know that sorrow has its purpose, 
                             By the sorrowing oft unguessed;
                           But as sure as the sun brings morning
                              Whatever best.

                          I know there are no errors,
                            In the great Eternal plan,
                         And all things work together
                           For the final good of man.
                        And I know when my soul speeds onward,
                           In its grand Eternal quest,
                        I shall say as I look back earthward,
                          Whatever best."
                                                                    "EW Wilcox"__
With Sympathy,
Loretta Thomas

  3. That was her! WOW! Being here in Atlanta, her disappearance was on the news. I'm not a regular news watcher, so I hadn't heard the outcome. So sad! She had just posted a few days earlier. We never know the day or the hour. The one blessing is that she didn't suffer long, if at all. Thanks for posting this. My heart and condolences to her family.
