She would pop up with fascinating pm's on topics of concern. She always wanted me to see Orthodoxy (with a big O) in a good light and was concerned when someone tried to say something less than kind about her faith.

I will miss her.

She loved her faith so much, and was sensitive of aspersions and bad characterizations of it, not the least from some who had claimed its mantle. We would exchange PMs and agree to consider the sources and rejoice in our fellow Christians who could put aside divisions for the love of Christ.

May light eternal shine upon her. [Votive] [Tear]

I always liked Leetle Masha's measured, gentle, encouraging posts; and the soft self-effacing humour behind them. When I saw her avatar, I knew I would probably feel somewhat differently about whatever was being discussed, if I read her post, because she had a priceless way of defusing angst.

I like to imagine that this is what she was like IRL too. So very glad CuppaT has written about the blessing she has been in this world, and will continue to be to us as she joins the ranks in heaven.

Thank you, CT.

I was not ready before, but I am now.

This is what Leetle Masha wanted me to post after she passed on. She said to find a good version of Tommy Makem singing Isn't it Grand Boys, because she didn't want a bunch of Shippies sniffling over her. She'd rather have a toast! So, here's to Mary, and here's to those who mourn, and here's to those who pray for her also.

Mary was very kind in PM's to me on many occasions.

In 2007 she sent me links to her church website where I could download icons. She went to great length to explain how to resize them and I still have the icons I printed and laminated.

A year or two later she wrote so gently and kindly when I was going through a time of great fear. And she prayed for me.

Lord, grant us the grace that overflowed in Mary's life and may she rest in peace and rise in glory [Votive]

When I first began posting, I responded to a post by an Orthodox. The response was aggressive and contemptuous. I was very taken aback- this was not in Hell!

Little Misha responded on the board, in a kind and helpful manner, but also sent me a PM, Explaining that I was not the only person who had recieved such a response.

I thought it so kind of her to take the time and trouble.
