Journey of a body on this earth



A lot of times we don’t know what’s going on with our fellow word pressers behind their blogs. We see posts fly by on our stream and we may like or comment now and again and build a friendship here and there without even knowing the struggles they face.

Today I found out a fellow blogger passed away. I knew nothing of his struggles. He presented himself as a kind man that only wanted to be liked and acknowledged for the beauty he saw and shared.

I’d like to acknowledge him here and say God bless you Ajay. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and I know you are in a better place now.

  7. I am terrible sad to hear this news Ajay was one of the first people to follow my Blog and I always enjoyed his comments. He never failed to have a Kind word even asking about me when I did not blog for awhile. A very Beautiful soul he will be very sadly missed.
    RIP Ajay I will miss you

  8. So sorry Laura. You have a lot of empathy to think of this person at this time.

  9. Well said, Laura! Take care.

  10. He posted thousands of photos… He will be missed…

  11. Its so sad to loose a loved one or friend and I’m sorry to hear of your friend. Sounds like he was a wonderful fellow and loved by many. I’m sure he will live in the heart of his friends forever.

    • We are all teachers and students at some point in our lives. The teacher can even be a homeless man as we walk by. Ajay reminded me to appreciate simple kindness. πŸ™‚

  12. I saw an announcement of the same thing in another place, but I had no idea he was a blogger. He must have had a good following and maybe someone will be able to preserve his work. Was he a photographer too?

  13. Not on topic, but how are you doing? Are you still having therapy?

    • I have only just begun my recovery and it takes weeks sometimes months to rehab. I got hole from the hospital Friday. Thanks for asking…time for bed if possible! lol

  14. I meant I got home from the hospital….

  15. Oh, no! So sorry to hear this! I only just started following his blog a couple of weeks ago or so. Thanks for sharing this. Thoughts and prayers to you and his family and other friends…

  16. Rest in peace, Ajay. Very nice post, Laura. You are right: we browse posts here on WordPress several times a week…and we do see the same pages or faces popping up every now and then. Glad to have known you as a blogger-friend on here, Laura.

  17. I did not know Ajay, but I just went to his blog. Not long ago he posted this:

    Old friends pass away,
    new friends appear
    It is just like the days
    An old day passes,
    a new day arrives
    The important thing is to
    make it meaningful
    a meaningful friend
    or a meaningful day

    Dalai Lama

    It seems appropriate and you Laura have made your friendship with him meaningful. R.I.P. Ajay….

    • Thank you for posting this Sharon. I was consumed with my surgery and hadn’t been checking blogs consistently so I missed that. I wouldn’t even say I had friendship….I would say I noticed his kindness and that it will be missed. His post makes me cry.

  18. It is nice you get to know your readers that well. It takes quite a bit of time getting to know them. I am wondering about one older gentleman now that has not posted in months. I doubt I will ever find out too.

  19. I’m so sorry Laura. Loosing someone is always heart braking. My thoughts, prayers and hugs to you and his family. 😦

  20. OMG…I’ve visited Ajay’s blog often. I’m so sorry to hear the news.

  21. A poignant reminder to cherish what we have, while we have it. Carry on, Ajay!

  22. I was shocked too, Laura. When I found out, I cried. And I dedicated one of my posts to Ajay. I didn’t know him well, for he only came into my life just lately. Yet, he has touched so many on WP and many do mourn for his loss. Thank you, friend, for doing this post. And I hope you are well and all is OK your way! (((HUGS))) Amy

  23. Laura, I just read some of the comments and I see you probably shouldn’t even be on here. Please take care of YOU. Rehab is really tough and you need all your energy to pour into that. My prayers and thoughts have been with you every day! Love to you, my friend!!! (((HUGS))) Amy

  24. Laura, I just realized I dedicated a post to Robin Williams, whose death really hit me hard. I am still reeling and as a result, here I am thinking I dedicated a post to Ajay. Just too much to take in. I’ve seen posts all over WP about Ajay which I have left comments and I left a comment on Ajay’s site for family. So that being said, I wanted to clear up my words that were not true. Also, someone keeps coming to my site and liking my About page or one of my posts and it is Ajay’s avatar. My heart just about stops when that happens. For real. xx Amy

  25. Is his blog still up? Could you post the link, please?
