Mairi had a unique voice. Sadly, that voice is gone, but at least we have the echo to share.

True words well spoken Don.

May the echos linger a long time.

I remember having conversations with Ma via messenger or skype and I always commented she sounded like the Queen. So she was forever ripped off as Queen Ma. In fact we did a mock up photo of her as the Queen, I will keep searching for it but in the meantime, here is one she had as an avatar

I always liked that picture.  I liked the worm with the various hats, but that picture told us a lot.  You don't get those lines without smiling a lot ;-)

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Once Ma and I got to know one another a bit, she would PM me with a request. It would be someones birthday and we had to throw a party.

Being the tech savvy lady she was, I had the job of collecting all the party stuff from all over the net, sending her the links and she and I would flood the board with silliness. Everyone seemed to let us know when there was a birthday coming up, she was in her element letting people know their day mattered, even if we had never met.

Love you Ma for all your craziness most of all  :-*

"I'm going to chemo with all your names emblazoned on my avatar/diva t-shirt with a poop badge attached."-Mairi

I bet she followed through on that fashion choice and had everyone at the treatment center smiling. One couldn't be around MA long, even virtually, before you were smiling.

Oh my, the anthologies and the olymp-inks. What a mess we were behind the scenes. Some will never know how much she put into those and the forum, although everyone still benefits from her efforts.

And butt clenching to music. So help me, never has a character's action stood out as much as this character of hers.

She had such a big and sassy personality, along with a love of all things Depp, Johnny Depp is probably feeling an inexplicable loss right now.


There will never be another MA. As with all greats, there never should be.

She was a lovely, kind woman, and she will be missed enormously.

That t-shirt rocked. Anything to help her through a rough journey.

The frozen nickers always stick in my mind when I think of the funny things. Little did she know that all these years down the track, we would still be thinking of her bloomers  :P :P

Well, the shirt was probably a dress on her. :)

There are some funnies that stand out. Even more are coming as the fog clears from memories.

Sad to hear about the loss of someone dear to us. I will miss her, but still hold her close.
