I try to go to her FB each year and write something.

She was a truly sweet and innocent soul.

May God grant her peace, forgive any shortcomings, and grant her rest among His saints.

Memory Eternal!

I often think of her...and miss her.

Btw, does anyone know if she was given an Orthodox burial, and where?
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Toronto.

I believe she was a member of the Russian Orthodox Church, and I presume she was buried properly.

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. John 11:25-26
