This is sad news to come to, after being away on vacation and incommunicado for the week.

Patricia was always a pleasure to speak to (via these threads), always happy and optimistic, and a supporter of those who tried to make these forums a happier and more informative place. She will be sorely missed. My heart goes out to her family, her friends, and all those who remember her fondly on MR.

You can make your donation on line with a credit card. I hope this helps people make a donation to all three charities in one pass.

I quote this again for those who may have missed it and want to know of a fitting way to honor Patricia for all she did.

I don't post a lot compared to many of the regulars on this site, so I don't really know anyone on here that well. However, I love reading posts by and (when I have time) interacting with the people who have become staples of this community. I have no stories to share but I'm saddened by this news. My condolences to Patricia's family.

I am saddened to hear of Patricia's passing. I hope that she is at peace and that her family and friends will share that peace in due course.

Farewell fine lady; rest well.

Thanks to Zelda for passing on the news with such eloquence and sensitivity.

My kindest regards to you all,

Tracey

I return from holidays to this very sad news. I had recently congratulated Patricia on her birthday and knew something was amiss because there was no reply, and Patricia always took the time to reply with a very personal message. Reading through all of the heartfelt comments in this thread, jinlo's remembrance struck a chord with me.

For me, this one simple thread, http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=78210, does more to illustrate her character than any words I could write now.

She responded to the request of a stranger with the heart of someone willing to do as much as possible.

May her spirit find joyous adventures.
I also gave Patricia karma for finding and uploading that specific eBook request and her response was:
Quote:
Thank you for the karma, WDE. I quite like doing requests because I often end up reading new things.
The library dedication is a great tribute to Patricia's tireless efforts and will allow a lot of others to discover the joy of "reading new things". It is still difficult to talk about Patricia in the past tense. I can still here her voice even though I've never met Patricia in person. I more than "quite liked" having you here Patricia. You were so very kind and will be dearly missed.

My heartfelt condolences to her partner, family and friends.

The more I think about this (I think Cassidy suggested it a week ago) the more I am in favour of it. Our "Upload Section" probably started out to be just that: a place reserved where people could stick the books they prepared so others could have a look at them. It has long since become something much more than that and largely as a result of the work and encouragement of people like Patricia. It's now a library so why don't we call it that and honour Patricia's efforts by naming it after her?

you are right vr, and wde and cassidy and everyone who supports this idea. i also can't think of a more fitting tribute. the upload section has been renamed as the "Patricia Clark Memorial Library" ; in order not to confuse new members we've left "E-book Uploads" as the first part of the name but you can see in the main forum page http://www.mobileread.com/forums/ the addition and there is also a short explanation of this dedication in form of a notice at the top of the page visible here : http://www.mobileread.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=132

we're currently discussing a more permanent way to include this explanation, probably with a wiki page at the very least.

Oooops. Please forgive me for not noticing that this had been done. I thought I was going to have to rally support for the idea but am very pleased that you're way ahead of me. May I also suggest that Patricia's avatar be placed somewhere on the page of the library with her name? I always thought that was a lovely and fitting image and I would be grateful to see it when I go there. And while I'm thinking of it I should spend some time soon converting and posting some more books there.

Some of us have joked that we had some Graces of our own here at Mobileread, and Patricia was certainly one of them. She was also a teacher of classics, and though not religious herself, used part of Ecclesiastes 12:12 in her sig line: "Of making many books there is no end." She was an inspiration in her generosity and skill in providing beautifully formatted ebooks, and even more so in her elegant and positive contributions to our online discussions. She will be dearly missed.

May I use the image for my own e-books?

Nice idea, but taking away the "green" would hide the fact that Patricia was (and always will be) a member of the team, especially from those who have never had the chance of meeting her here.
