If there were a MJ Smith fan club, I'd join in a heartbeat. I hope she's ok.

There are many that no longer or rarely frequent the forums, some for known and some for unknown reasons: MJ, Matthew, Rosie, George, Steve, Milford, etc. It's funny how much those people come to mean to you just from reading their posts for so long on the forums even when you don't really know them. I miss all their valuable posts.

Randy,

Milford went home and if you meant Steve as in Clark, then, he, too, has gone on to be with the Lord.  From your post, it sounds like you missed those forum notifications, which is not a hard thing to do.  God bless!

It may have been more than that but Rosie stated she was finding the forums a bit too hostile (my word I don't remember her exact phrasing). Rosies has indeed posted a few times in the past several months, as to what has happened to martha hopefully she is just busy with pleasant endeavours.

Maybe Denise can chime in.  It seemed they were both good friends and very similar in personality. 

Prayers go out to MJ (Martha) hoping she's doing well.

I'm not in MJ's world ... she's miles (and more miles) ahead of me.  A shared tradition from long ago maybe.

I just assumed she's helping on the major Logos re-write (Logos9).

You mean SuperTramp? Oh man! If so, my prayers go out to his family and kids.  May the Lord be with them always!

Thanks, Juanita. I was aware of their passing. Milford's was the first time I cried for someone I had never met and who probably didn't know me from Adam, but I read his posts so often here that I felt like I knew him as well as anyone IRL. I still miss their presence here on the forums. They both contributed a great deal to the forums and taught me a great deal.

I don't remember learning that Matthew had passed, but I knew his condition. He will also be dearly missed.

Matthew passed away on March 2. His passing was shared by his wife among the MVPs. Perhaps one of us should have said something.

Are you speaking of the Steve Clark that gave us the Logos Library Reporter?

Wow. I missed the notice for some reason, and sorry to hear this news. I was beginning to wonder why there hasn't been an update in the reporter for some time. BTW: He lives on for some of us (as we didn't know him personally) through his software that is still useful to this day.

My thoughts are with Matthew's family. I had wondered how he was going as I hadn't seen him post anything for quite a long time. Thank you Mark for letting us all know of his passing.

I also missed the thread about Steve Clark.

I just looked it up and who was there making the first response .... MJ Smith.

Thank you all - it's nice to be missed and I do intent to return. There was a confluence of events, political and personal, that coincided with a spate of rather nasty posts that made me decide to take a breather - an in-life retreat to insure I kept my sight on the one appropriate prize for a Christian. Coming from a tradition of theosis, I take this very seriously. I had assumed that I would jump back in with both feet when the retreat was finished.

Unfortunately, a number of small family issues and a couple of side projects - one Logos related - have kept me saying "next week I'll start monitoring the forums again" with next week never quite arriving. I do expect to get back to the weekly summaries of the best posts and a bit later to hints of the day in a more structured order than the first time through.

Again, thank you for caring enough to ask.

Thank you MJ for the update - know that you will continue to be in our prayers (well, mine anyhow Big Smile)

Blessings,

It's great to hear from you MJ and I look forward to you joining us again. In my denomination, our ministers have the provision of an annual week of sabbatical and I've always found that very beneficial. I hope yours has been a blessing too. Now I'm off to learn about theosis!

Your presence is highly valued and your absence missed, MJ. Thank you for the countless instances of informed and courteous help that you have provided to many in these Logos fora. Blessings on you in all of your endeavors.
