I just wanted to say that, although I wasn't a member when Rosehip was still on these forums, I've read through some of her posts and found them to be very edifying. It has certainly changed my perspective on life and faith. It is unthinkable that she isn't now in the eternal loving embrace of God. I want to say more but find it hard to articulate my feelings about it...

It's been two years since Martha has reposed.

We miss you, Rosehip!

Memory Eternal!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

May her memory be eternal.

Martha didn't have many Orthodox friends and her family was not Orthodox. If you are a prosphora maker you could put her name on the commemoration list for the dead if you are so inclined. It is another way to show your love for her that she will greatly benefit.

I pray for her every liturgy! 

I miss her very much. She really was such a wonderful person, even though most of us only knew her online.
