Strength in Numbers

By now you will have heard that the Purple House at Random Ramblings of  SAHM has been rocked to it's foundations with the sad passing of Lori's husband, Tony.

Today I am so proud of the Mummy Blogging community. They have come together to support one of their own. Twitter has been swamped with words of love and support so much so that #prayingfortony was trending in Australia.

They have organized meals, washing, ironing and cleaning for Lori, so that she can concentrate on healing and focus on her two small children, Chop & Bump, who now don't have a Daddy.

They have dug deep and raised almost $3000 to help lessen the financial burden a sudden death in the family creates.

Today I have seen both the extremely ugly side of life, in the taking of such a young life; and the astounding beauty in it, with the warmth and compassion shown by the community.
For once Casa de Glowless has a glow. The glow of a candle burning brightly, lighting Tony's way for the next leg of his journey.

Rest In Peace, Tony

  2. It has been quite shocking - but you guys have shown what being true 'friends' is all about, no matter how distant and unique that friendship may be. hold your heads up high and be proud of yourselves.

  3. That made me cry! Words dont usually do that! xxx

  4. That's beautiful! and your candle is amazing.

  5. Beautifully said. x Aussie mummy Bloggers are amazing. I'm so proud to be a part of this community.

  7. I'm still terribly saddened by this news, but heartened to know that there are so many rallying behind Lori, especially with all the chores and whatnot.
