Martha Hayes was a gentle and kind soul, who only wished to find and give love in this world. 

She reposed in the Lord December 20, 2010.

As her first year draws to a close, please remember her in your prayers.

Fathers, if you would please commemorate her during the Divine Liturgy we would all be greatful.

Let her rejoice in our memory of her and our love for her!



May the Lord have mercy on Martha's soul, forgive her any and all trespasses and grant her repose amongst His Saints.

Memory Eternal!

I share the sadness that she is no longer with us.  I had the feeling that her connections with people on the forum were very important to her since she seemed a lonely soul out in the real world.  But there is happiness in knowing that she has gone to another world where she will belong and where she has found the love she sought so much here.

Give rest, O Christ, to thy servant with thy saints: where sorrow and pain are no more; neither sighing but life everlasting. Thou only art immortal, the creator and maker of All: and we are mortal formed from the dust of the earth, and unto earth shall we return: for so thou didst ordain, when thou created me saying: “Dust thou art und unto dust shalt thou return.” All we go down to the dust; and weeping o’er the grave we make our song: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Martha was from Canada. She had worked in Ukraine as a missionary, some kind of Protestant, before converting to Orthodoxy. She was fluent in Russian, I understand. The sweetest lady, who wanted someone to love her. Cry
