Thank you for your update Zelda. I'm glad our community - and its concern and grief - was included in Pat's memorial.

I'm glad to hear about the service. I was a little slow to notice, but I'm glad the uploaded book section has been renamed. Thinking of all of us who are thinking of her...

Thank you from all of us that couldn't go.

Thanks again for the update Zelda.

I'm sure that you were there first and foremost as a friend of Patricia, but I do feel happy that somebody from MR was there.

Thanks you, Zelda, for sharing that. It's too bad that in this worldwide community there are many of us who couldn't be there in person, but we're all grateful that you could be there for us.

I liked this idea so much, I've been trying to go in after every three times I give karma (it won't let me do it more often!) Plus, you have to find other posts to apply it to, because you can only apply karma to a specific post once.

As I see it it was a great honour for all of us as members, to having the community been included in said tribute by the readings you mentioned. I will not arrogate to express my thanks for this honour on behalf of MR as an entity, since Its Alex' baby and I am sure he will or quietly already has done. Instead of that I want to express my personal thanks to everyone whose remarks has been mentioned - just a thank from member to other members - for making this possible.

And I wanted to thank YOU dear Zippy:
You suffer.
It's hard enough to speak, the more is to write about things really painful and hurting
doing this in a language which is not the maternal one is even more work and pain for the tortured mind
You do all this for us and the sound of your fingers on the keys is accompanied by a whispering *tap tap* of your tears on the keyboard. Every tear a sacrifice. Every tear a debt no one of us can ever pay back.

i'm back home now, still a bit under the shock of it all. i'll be thinking of her a lot in the coming days and weeks.
Thank you so much, z-chan. I've been thinking of you a lot this week.

I just saw this news and I'm so shocked and sorry! I loved the work Patricia did here, and so many of the books she loved and brought to us were books I loved too. What a gift. We hold you in heart and prayer, Patricia.
