It is with a very heavy heart that I am reporting the following news...
MarySecretary passed away on March 28, 2010.
There was an announcement on her Facebook account page from one of her close friends, but I did not see it until today as there is a different link to hit in order to see her friends' posts.
Please pray for her husband, her children and her grandchildren.
I wanted to post a beautiful thread -- as beautiful as Mary, but no thread would be able to do her justice no matter how long I worked on it, so I'll just say what's in my heart right now...
Mary was truly a very special, loving, kind, and faith-filled woman who was never without a kind word, or gentle reminder for friends in need.
I will never forget Mary, and I know none of us here at FR that were fortunate enough to know here will either. I never would have made it through the last year without her kindness and friendship to me...
I love you Mary, and will miss you something terrible.
A ping to some very, very sad news...
[Quix, I’ve included the End Time List #1 to this post, and a few other folks... I’m not sure if you need to include the other portions of if they are repeats... Sorry...]
RIP, one of my favorite all-time freepers. Sometimes you can tell how nice a person is throught their posts, and MarySecretary was one of those people.
Prayers up for her family.
Prayers for her eternal rest...
Bon voyage, MarySecretary. You were one of my favorite Freepers. Godspeed to your next life.
Ping to GRLP?
I remember her from way back. I wish her family well. She was a part of this family too and will be missed by all who knew or had the good fortune of chatting with her.
Oh no! I am speechless....
What a loss.
While we had our differences over these many years, I always enjoyed sparring with her.
May God rest her soul.
We will meet face to face someday Mary, in the place He prepared.
In the midst of one of my most trying times, marysecretary was one very solid rock and witness. One of two.
Parting is sorrow marysecretary, but I rejoice that you are finally free, and with the Lord.
RIP, MS. God BLess your family
Oh, no!!! :*(
I am so sorry to hear this news! The last I’d heard was a prayer list for her for an infection, but it didn’t sound like she was on her death bed or anything!! :*(
Prayers going up for her family, and friends IRL, and those here in cyberspace. I’m relieved that she is with Jesus and no longer suffers, but I grieve for those who loved her and wanted her to be around for a lot longer time than this.
If y’all take up a donation for the family, please let me know so I can give a little something to help out with funeral costs, etc. Thanks for letting us know, LibertyRocks.
Very sad news. My condolences to you and all others who knew her well.
You’re welcome... I’m not sure what the family needs beyond prayer, but I will try to contact her friend, or one of her sons tomorrow and find out. I’ll also try to locate her obituary to see if there were any instructions regarding flowers/donations or that sort of thing. I’m sorry I don’t have more information right now...
BTTT... Great Freeper
GB, she’s been promoted.
Be at peace, Marysecretary. :(
May she RIP.
Mary is now in Glory with the Lord.
Adding my prayers for her family.
My sympathies to her family. I remember discussing lefse and other Norwegian delicacies with Mary.
Prayer bump for her family in this time of lost.
I’m so very sorry for the loss of your dear friend Mary. I always enjoyed her posts and and am saddened to hear of her passing.
Prayers for all of her friends and family, and for the repose of Mary’s soul in the loving arms of our Lord.
Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord,
And let perpetual Light shine upon them.
May their souls
And the souls of all the faithful departed
Through the mercy of God
Rest in peace.
How very sad. Prayers for her family. Her last post was only 1 day before. RIP Marysecretary. You will be missed.
I’m so sorry. Prayers for her family and loved ones.
Prayers up for her family and may Mary RIP.
Oh, nuts. Prayers up.
One of the good ones. Thank you for telling me.
Last post, March 27, 2010...freeping until the end.
Thank you for this thread Liberty Rocks..
Though I knew Mary only briefly she had the “Mary Way” of reaching through the keyboard to touch the many here on FR...I was not exempt...I will miss her.
May the love of the Christ she served and loved well... comfort and keep her family in the hours and weeks ahead.
how did she die?
Oh no. God bless her soul. And her family
Does anyone have a photo?
How terribly sad for all of us who will miss her dearly. It is a great comfort to know that she’s has gone to be with the Lord. May God grant peace and comfort to her family.
AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!
AM VERY GLAD FOR HER.
I didn’t realize that the vague sense of loss I’d been feeling was related to not hearing from her that long.
A bit sad she didnt take me with her.
She was a treasured Sister in The Lord, alright. Better so, now! LOL.
She doesnt have to put up with the pain etc. Yea God! Yea Mary!
Id actually expected her graduation much before this. Had actually said all Id want to have said to someone before their graduation as gently and supportively as I could without being overly blunt. And, said something to the effect that shed better not go without taking me with her or some such. She responded well.
WELL GOOD FOR HER.
Thanks for your kind msg and thread post. I think she’d have made some quip in reply.
I have been missing her wit; fiesty supportiveness; kind-heartedness; perceptiveness; intense caring; . . . HER.
If you have a link to the FBk page, please share it. I have a little used account there but would like to leave a comment or 3.
May God be with all her much loved relatives. May her son realize what’s needed to join her.
God be with you.
Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.
I know one thing.
In the unlikely event that the Roman Catholics et al are right about graduated saint’s praying for us remaining—Mary would be likely to be doing that task up right, intensely and relentlessly!—without the least need of anyone asking her to!
Mostly, I think she’s kicking up her heels and enjoying Christ, Father and Spirit’s more intense Presence uproariously—as well as all of Heaven. Gads what fun she must be having without a flawed body to drag around.
Good on ya, Mary.
Sigh. Sigh. Sigh. Tears.
BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.
A PRECIOUS FAVORITE, OF MINE, TOO.
She’d long been a very great treasure to me, hereon.
I’m sure the funeral is well done and long over.
FaceBook is likely the only route we have to say anything to her family—if any of them bother with that, at all.
She was happy to keep FR somewhat detached from her family. She felt free-er hereon that way. Didn’t want to upset her family with her strident views hereon.
Ping me if you come up with anything.
