Dear readers and friends,
I am Kathryn’s daughter. It’s with a very heavy and aching heart that I have to inform you that my mother was taken from us suddenly and unexpectedly in the early morning hours of December 21st as the result of a serious stroke.
As I’m sure you all know, my mom was a generous, kind, sweet, intelligent, and all-around amazing person and she will be greatly missed by anyone who knew her. I want you all to know that being a member of this community and acting as an advocate for people was so very important to her. She cherished all of the relationships and friendships she developed within this community and she was always talking with me about people she had met through her blog. I know that it is difficult to celebrate and mourn people that you may have never met in the physical world, but please take comfort in the fact that my mom gained much strength and joy from her interactions with all of you.
Unfortunately, we are not familiar with all of the people she met through this blog and her other online groups, so if you would like to hear from us, please leave your contact information in a comment.
Thank you all for all of the joy you brought my mom.
