Ah, I think I felt that wind stirring across Bookshare land.  I too was
there, and I will never forget Mary's kindness.  Thank you Lissi for this
tribute!

Dear Booksharian Friends,

Thank you so much for your company and loyalty in paying a Booksharian
tribute to Mayrie by joining together in reading and volunteering for
Bookshare, activities which brought pleasure and conviction of
accomplishment to her. She'd be right here, doing what we just did if she
could. I think our turning pages stirred up a coast to coast breeze the
meteorologists aren't going to be able to explain.

If you read with us and I don't mention your name, you know your
participation is felt and appreciated just as much. 

Evan scanned 94 optimized pages of, "The Twelve stories of Christmas," in
tribute to Mayrie's smooth moves at the scanner. I'm so glad that Amber,
Christina, Julia and Sandi and some other volunteer scanners showed up. 

I proofread 23 pages of "Dead in the Water, An Amanda Hazard Mystery #2."
Sue, Courtney, Cindy, Marty, Regina, Chela, and the other proofreaders here
know how Mayrie had to concentrate but loved every minute of it as she
Proofread as a member of Bookshare's staff.

A few cute, quirky tidbits popped up in my proofreading as I tried to pay
attention while thinking about Mayrie and all of you who were reading, too.
Jaws makes them sound funny.

"Elmer only wore his false teeth while eating--period."

I like that dash dash period period!

*

Nick yelped and shook his thumb when he hammered the wrong nail--his
fingernail.

*

Jaws pronounced snakebit, snack a bit, which is what I did as I proofed,
green and red em and emz.

Guess what Mayrie did during her vacation a year ago before she knew she was
sick? She picked a mystery series she hadn't worked on and read it start to
finish. Before Bookshare there were almost no complete series accessible to
us. 

Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, for bookishly showing the
strength and caring of Bookshare volunteers for one of our own.

Always with love,

Lissi
