♥ Flowers and Candles for Jill St. Onge

= Saturday, May 9, 2009 =




For those who haven't heard or read about the news, Jill St. Onge, a blogger, recently passed away while vacationing with her fiancee Ryan Kells, in south east Asia.

I do not know her personally but her story struck me and as I read her family and friends' blogs, I wept. It's so sad that such a tragedy would take so long to investigate. Her family and friends needs to know the reason behind the mystery. And as well as the other tourists who stayed in the same resort and suffered the same fate.

My prayer goes to them...

Please visit Jill's and her family's blogs and help spread the word. Much attention is needed from the media so their case will move faster.

Read the whole story in (1) CNN, (2) Seattle Times (3) phuketwan.com (4) Maid's Accouns

About Jill - Jill's brother made this blog to keep the story alive. The longer this is in public view the more likely they will get a real answer.

Thailand could are less about finding out what happened to Ms St Onge and the Norwegian women. All they care about is not hurting tourism, and all the embassies care about is not stepping on toes .
If you knew what we ex pats do about lack safety concerns within Thailand, you would run, screaming AWAY from this place
-Also; May 6 a Swiss woman was found dead on the beach in neighboring Krabi , apparently strangled.
-A Norwegian man died April 1 -AND there was an un ID' male foreigner body found in the water May 1 also off Krabi.

Thanks for the comments everyone! And for the links from the Thai expat. I'm heading over to visit them now.

What are some ways I could eliminate stress at home? Beyond candles and flowers.?

Typically, rectangular tables tend to be long and narrow. Once again, let the lines of the table dictate the shape of flower displays. Slater recommends a "loose" arrangement of gourds, flowers and candles that can be rearranged when necessary.thanks!
