Thank you SO much Chris for dropping in and sharing your thoughts and feelings with us. Patricia will continue as a part of MobileRead as long as this forum exists, and long afterward in each book downloaded and treasured by individual MR members.

I hope you feel comfortable in our community and might consider remaining a member with us.

Welcome Chris! Patricia was a great friend to me here though I was a newbie. She uploaded a number of books specially upon my requests. God bless her.

Thanks for coming by, Chris! I am one who didn't know her nearly as well as others, but she was always very welcoming when I first started, and I appreciated her helpful spirit and dedication to the written word. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Please, maybe, stay and become part of this community....

Every time I return to the Mobile Read library, I find myself drawn to Patricia's contributions. Each time, I'm touched by her patience and impressed by her good taste.

When I actually download and read the books she recreated, designed, transposed and even edited so lovingly, I'm grateful all over again for her work. She has (in a way) bequeathed to us the most carefully made ebook editions I've ever seen. They are better proofed than most of the books released by major publishers, and -- here's the important thing -- it is a pleasure to feel I'm getting to know two people every time I open one: the author and Patricia herself.

If only I'd been able to get to know her personally while she was doing all this! I vow to spend part of this Sunday reading her various posts. I need to hear the voice of the discerning and humble person who gave us these treasures.

That's a lovely post, and heartwarming to know that Patricia still impresses herself on people so. As you see more of her posts I think you'll find her exactly as you describe.

Thank-you.

Cheers,
Marc

I recently reread a PM that Patricia sent to me when my mother passed away two years ago.

Patricia was so kind, gentle and empathetic.

Her remembrance is always with me.

Patricia was everything that a 'lady' should be, and more, and I am sure that

she will always remain a light for all of us.

Her flame grows.

Sincerely.

Empathy is not always a pleasant emotion to experience, but it is certainly one of the most admirable and kind. This post is very kind of you, drseabee, as much as I am so sorry to hear its prompting. Condolences are returned.

And welcome to MobileRead.

I agree with Prestidigitweeze. It's always sad when someone passes, but they're not really gone as long as we remember them and Patricia will be remembered for a long time to come by those who read the books that she posted here at MR.

Having had to write my own mother's eulogy recently, I chose to publish it after realizing I wasn't alone in shouldering private grief. It was the right thing to do just as this thread about Patricia is right.

Too many people struggle with the feeling that their loved one was precious in the face of apparent indifference. Suddenly, there is a hole that swallows the earth and air -- a rift that isolates -- yet no one else seems to see it.

I want them to see it.

Perhaps we shouldn't have to witness to posterity that a person in our lives was important, but I say there's a duty to do so. No renovating stranger should ever be allowed to dismantle the reliquaries of familial/maternal/romantic love as if they were voting booths.

This one mattered. I know so. I testify so to time.

May Patricia's memory resonate with all who esteem their own families, who wish to honor the blood-bound volunteers who conceived and supported them. They loved us willingly and unwaveringly and they continue to do so in the mind, as time winds down.

May all who encounter Patricia's memory learn of the masterpieces she created on the web and in life. She composed a cantata and it was you, wrote novels and they were the narratives of others' progress -- were the aesthetic joys she communicated here and in the sociophysical world.

May all who encounter her here -- and through you, Chris, and you, Marc (her friend), and all other intimates who remain -- come to realize that the arc of her life continues: in her work, of course, but also in those who survive her. You whose present is her legacy and whose destiny is her future.
