R.I.P. Ingrid/CaptainKiddy

Into the echo, we shout our dreams
Into the echo, we throw our hearts
Into the echo, we send our love…

Due to the fact that Tumblr deleted CaptainKiddy’s Blog we can no longer access her original posts unless we come across one on someone’s blog so I respectfully repost this gifset in her memory.

I have seen some really beautiful comments regarding the posts by Junkmonsters, Whitetiger9 and myself yesterday. 

I was really touched by them and I believe Ingrid would be smiling too.

In hindsight I would like to amend my other post from “For those of YOU who remember to For those of YOU who keep the spirit of love alive here in the BONJOVIFAMILY ♥”

So much love to Lydia-Jovigirl and Greekgoddess-a-d…you are definitely part of my BONJOVIFAMILY 

So some of you who are still around from back in 2011/2012 will still remember our friend and BONJOVIFAMILY ANGEL Ingrid.
For those of you who weren’t here, she was a beautiful soul who passed away from complications sustained in an automobile accident.
You may have seen her gifs floating around on here and if you were lucky enough to check out her blog before it was deleted the other day you may have had the chance to enjoy her blog, her gifs, and her inspirational music playlist. 
Ingrid was a beautiful person, taken from this world way too soon. The gif above is just one example of the type of thing she was known around here for. She always had a kind word for everyone and would surprise us with sweet little “gif gifts” just like this one.
At the time of her death, our fandom was very close. People here were greatly effected by the fact that someone so young, so kind, so amazing, had lost their life.
Yesterday, some of us were forced to face this awful fact of life once again in realizing her blog was now also gone.
I took a day to think about it all and the things I came back to were that she will always stay in the hearts of those of us who knew and loved her and the second thing was that we should all realize how lucky we are that we are here today and never take our lives for granted, nor the people we love.
So in honour of Ingrid take a moment today to tell someone you love and appreciate them. It’s the kind of thing she would do…

…and someone else is using her url and I just want to throw up…

Oh.my.god.

I thought this could happen. That if an account lay dormant for too long Tumblr might delete it.

I just went to Captainkiddy’s blog to listen to her playlist and the blog is gone…

I feel like my heart is breaking all over again…

I hope this is not all they remember about Vancouver…but I’m sure there’s some stories they will take to their graves ;)

Mind you a friend of mine shared a story with me about the night she and some friends partied with the boys…

(This is the last in the series of gifs, Ingrid’s sister gifted me with that were meant for me…)

Thanks Ingrid…always making me smile :)

Thanks for all the beautiful messages everyone.
Captainkiddy truly embodied why I started the BONJOVIFAMILY….
Here’s to hoping you came by yesterday to check it out Christal… your sister will never be forgotten ♥
And remember everyone the thought to take from this is not to be sad and defeated by the question why it happened to someone so young…it’s to remember to live your life everyday with joy and passion like it could be your last. 
Ingrid would want you to do that. I want you to do that ♥

Hello! I did not know it was Captainkiddy's birthday today (till the 12th here), and that makes me sad because she sounds like a great friend, and it seems she was as she touched so many people. Jovimama, I think she'd be happy and proud with what you and everyone else have done both in her memory and with the Bon Jovi Family. I wish I could have known her.

Thank you.

She was a truly beautiful soul.

                                          “The Answer”
The lightning flashed as angelsRode fiery chargers through the cloudsThat answer scared me into tearsAnd all the grownups laughed out loudNow the years roll on, tired voices have all goneNow they ride their thunder through the heavensThere’s a world in every drop of rainEmbracing oceans sweep us home againCome along with me, come along with meSeek the truth, you shall not find another lieThey say for every living thingThere’s a guide up in the skyThat helps you pass from world to worldSo you never really dieThen with scythe and cloakDeath comes waltzing to your sideAs the visions pass you askIf there was meaning to your lifeAs you strain to hear the answer, spirits sing, and devils fiddleAs he bends to whisper in your hear, he leaves you one more riddleOh, the answer lies beyond the painAll the questions in our minds, we surely ask in vainCome along with me, come along with meSeek the truth, and you shall find another life…And now my life is like a stormGrowing stronger every dayLike the unrelenting windThat comes to blow our lives awaySo I live each day like I know it’s my lastIf there is no future there must be no pastNow I know the answers never meant a thingAnd with each instant that I breatheI feel the joy that life can bringCome along with me, come along with meSeek the truth, you shall not find another lieCome along with me, come along with meSeek the truth, you shall not find another lie

Happy Birthday Ingrid there was definitely meaning to your life ♥
xoxo YOUR JOVIMAMA always ♥

                                          “The Answer”

The lightning flashed as angels
Rode fiery chargers through the clouds
That answer scared me into tears
And all the grownups laughed out loud

Now the years roll on, tired voices have all gone
Now they ride their thunder through the heavens

There’s a world in every drop of rain
Embracing oceans sweep us home again
Come along with me, come along with me
Seek the truth, you shall not find another lie

They say for every living thing
There’s a guide up in the sky
That helps you pass from world to world
So you never really die

Then with scythe and cloak
Death comes waltzing to your side
As the visions pass you ask
If there was meaning to your life
As you strain to hear the answer, spirits sing, and devils fiddle
As he bends to whisper in your hear, he leaves you one more riddle

Oh, the answer lies beyond the pain
All the questions in our minds, we surely ask in vain
Come along with me, come along with me
Seek the truth, and you shall find another life…

And now my life is like a storm
Growing stronger every day
Like the unrelenting wind
That comes to blow our lives away
So I live each day like I know it’s my last
If there is no future there must be no past

Now I know the answers never meant a thing
And with each instant that I breathe
I feel the joy that life can bring
Come along with me, come along with me
Seek the truth, you shall not find another lie
Come along with me, come along with me
Seek the truth, you shall not find another lie

Happy Birthday Ingrid there was definitely meaning to your life 

xoxo YOUR JOVIMAMA always 

I was thinking that today would be a great day to tell people here or anywhere in your life that you love them… you never know when it might be your last chance…I think Ingrid would like that ♥

So after Ingrid passed her sister was kind enough to send me some of her gifs that she’d made but had not had the time to post…
I greedily kept them to myself til now but I think it’s time for me to post them.
Ingrid was always wonderful at making people feel good with her gifs, surprising us with ones she thought we’d like. Telling us in words or gifs how she felt.
This one is still hard for me to look at but it means a lot to me as you can imagine.

So it is 6:17a.m, Sept 12th here in Vancouver. 

As I watch a magnificent sunrise out my window I am reminded how lucky I am to be alive. I am also reminded that our sweet friend and my Jovibaby Ingrid/CaptainKiddy has been gone for a year and once again a birthday will pass for her that she will not be here to celebrate with us.

But maybe she is. Maybe she is looking over my shoulder watching what I type. Her sister told me once that Ingrid had clocks set to remind her what time she could come on line to talk to me and some of her other friends here on Tumblr… So I like to think she’s still checking in on us.

So if you are Ingrid, I just wanted to remind you how much you are missed and still loved by all of us that remember you. Your beautiful gifs still circulate around here and even if the thieves who steal them and repost them don’t realize how wrong what they are doing is, it is still a tribute to the fact that you made some truly beautiful gifs for all of us and when I see them on the dash it gives me a moment to remember…

Happy Birthday beatiful Jovibaby…

YOUR JOVIMAMA ALWAYS <3

CaptainKiddy’s sister was kind enough to send me some personal photos of Ingrid that I would like to share with you all today along with some of the beautiful gifs she made…

Thinking of you Ingrid today and everyday  <3 Always
