Sadness: Holding Court

This afternoon I was taking a little break from work and went onto twitter. I was very saddened to find out that the lovely Marija from Holding Court had passed away on July 10th due to car accident.

I immediately got shivers and the tears started rolling down my face. While I never got to “meet” Marija in person she was one of us and that immediately made her a friend. I always use to get so happy when her comments would pop up on my blog because I adored her chic design style and happy personality.

 



Not only was she a stylish designer, but she was a loving mother to 2 kids and a wonderful wife to boot. I have no words to express to her family how truly saddened I feel and how sorry I am for their loss.

 

I can only say that I am so happy to have known Marija and have her associated with something that makes me so happy in my life.

 



If you have a second please send the Stephens family your thoughts and prayers.

So hard to hold back the tears. I know God has a plan but hard to imagine why she was taken? My heart breaks for her entire family, especially her two young children.

NO! I can't believe it, I simply can't - she always had such lovely things to say on every single post of mine and countless others. Her family is in my prayers.

Oh my gosh. I am a relatively new reader of her blog, but found it so lovely. This is just so terrible to read.
Prayers to her family.

I'm so devestated for her family, and those beautiful children. What a wonderful tribute her husband took the time to write on her blog. So sad and unfair.

I've been heartbroken all day and can't get her beautiful family out of my head or heart. I'm sure her husband Cory must be comforted by all the love flowing to him and his children from blogland where his lovely wife touched so many.

I just had to illustrate her home for her family. I know she would want to have that for her family. She inspired me that she went back to school to pursue something she was passionate about and that her husband was supportive too.
I love that she made such an impression on each of us.

I knew of her but I don't know if we ever read each others' blogs. Still, as you said, she was one of us. It hit very close to home to hear that news. Someone directed me to her blog where I read her husband's post. I feel for her family so much and am thinking of them.
