Hi everyone,

I greatly appreciate the work of the MVPs, as well as some folk I think of as honorary MVPs such as Dan Francis. But it's been quite a while, I think, since we've heard from MJ. After I bought my first base package and started to frequent the forums, MJs was an almost constant voice. She knew the software thoroughly.  She was always willing to help,  no matter what theological side of the street people came from. Her responses were clear and logical.  She was also willing to hold us accountable to the forum guidelines we all implicitly accept when we post here. 

Unfortunately she suffered the fate of many who offer help to others in our sinful world - she was sometimes misunderstood and abused and falsely accused and attacked. I assume this is why her voice is now silent on our forums. 

I for one am very sad that this is the case (if I'm right). So this post is simply to say a belated but sincere thank you to MJ for all she contributed to these forums and our use of Logos. 

I know there may be other reasons such as ill-health which have kept her away - it would be good to hear about that if someone is aware of it so we can pray for her. But I wanted to let her know (if she's still checking in occasionally) that she is missed. 

God bless you MJ,

Colin

Been over 5 weeks...I wonder how she's doing. We need to get that hound of hers to track her down!

I have always found her comments kind, Christian and thoughtful but never unpleasant or small minded. Someone whose comments that I have always looked forward to reading and someone who I look forward to meeting one day albeit most probably in the next world.

MJ's Tip of the Day and Tips of the Week were my primary source of instruction on Logos and turned my on to the power at my fingertips. I have missed her posts.

Yep, I was always glad to see MJ posting, and I've learned a lot from her writings as well as her book recommendations.  God bless you where ever you are out there MJ.  :)

I second all that has been said she knows the software and always seems to have the answer. Thanks for bringing up her name. People are too soon forgotten in our busy world.
