A Tribute to a Patriot …

In the early days of The Bold Pursuit, a group of friends gathered, fellow conservatives, who shared the excitement and promise of creating a special place to give voice to the issues of the day and express devotion to their country.

We were united in a mutual objective; a patriot’s dream of reversing the dangerous course that leaders and lawmakers set us upon and envisioning a place where those with similar views could interact and inspire each other.

While we parted ways before realizing this dream as a group, our efforts did not cease as we separately pursued our goals.

One member of our group, Toni, Rok or Red Diva – by whatever name she was known to you – was an indefatigable and outspoken advocate for conservative issues.

This patriot, who worked so hard and wrote so boldly in her quest to serve her country, completed her mission yesterday, September 24, 2010. She is now on permanent leave … to the arms of her Savior, a rest well-earned.

We wish Toni everlasting peace, a comfortable chair on a sunny porch and chilled glasses of lemonade in her Paradise. We hope she will keep all of us in her prayers (and we know she will) as we continue our missions … for our country and our freedoms.

Thank you, Toni, for being part of our lives and sharing our dream.

  1. Christina - Such a warm and wonderful tribute to one of our most ardent patriots. Toni spent many hours writing about and promoting the Conservative cause. Her energy and enthusiasm was felt throughout the blogosphere. She expressed her concerns about the policies of the current administration, but maintained a positive attitude about the future of our great nation. Toni was respected and admired by all whose lives she touched. Rest in peace, Toni - we will sustain your badge of courage and honor as we continue your mission to protect and preserve our freedom.

  2. Thank you, Genevieve, for such a lovely appreciation of Toni. She's known as RedDiva Iam on Facebook if anyone wishes to post thoughts or condolences on her page.
