Saija's Loss

Saija, our beloved Pilgrim Pal, has posted a sad note on her Thro' A Glass Darkly regarding the sudden passing of her cousin.

Here's what she wrote and the accompanying graphic:

"this morning started with tragic news ... my cousin, only 48 years old, died suddenly ... in much the same way as leo's sister ... a prolonged headache ... an aneurysm ... then death ...he lived in finland ... the distance is great ... yet the grief that my family over there is feeling - is felt here in our home too ... just another reminder of our mortality ... the brevity of life ... and a need to live each day, as if it were our last ..."

And so, Pilgrim Pals, let's surround Saija with our love, concern and prayer support and assure her that we're standing with her during these difficult times.

Thank you!

~ David, the Pilgrim

I am Dr. Sam. I would like for you to come to my blog. I have been a Carneologist for the last 18+ years. In my time, in the feild of Carneology, I have discovered an emotional dilema effecting at least 25 million americans, according to my personal research. I have just began a blog to possibly and effectively help people cure this emotional dissorder while remaining anonymous. I have founded the name for this disorder and named it. Do not be mad at me for leaving this in your comments because in no way am i diagnosing you with this dissorder. I am only attempting to shed light to many people in an effort to help womankind. Please feel free to come to my blog at and read about this newly discovered problem afflicting millions nation-wide and who knows how many world wide.
Thankyou very much, Dr. Sam
