The power of your words have touched a stranger on the other side of the world. And I have sat still for a very long time just sharing in your sorrow and your grief..... Now, back through the blogosphere I send my heartfelt sympathy.


It's so odd to have no words to share, in a medium where words are all we have. Take care, Kate, please.

You done good Kate!! This was what you needed to do, get it out where you can see it. This is the first step in healing. This was a wonderful testimonial to him. as were the two pictures.

As I said in my email, grief is such a strange emotion...fine one minute, sobbing the next, and then fine the next.

EAT KATE!!!! EAT!!!!


Kuz'n Kate, though you are in Alaska and I am in Florida -- about as far apart as we can be within the same country -- my heart is with you.

Your spirit has touched many of us in far flung places of the earth, and now each ray of light returns to you with added strength. May the power of love and light sustain you now.


Aw, sweetie... I am so sorry. :*(

Wulfgar is spreading the word out to all your friends as we speak.


Oh, honey I am so sorry. I wish I were there to offer you a hug or something. We're all thinking of you.

much love to you. I just don't know what to say. And its kind of hard to say much with so much emotion going through me. May you rest easier soon.

and gives us wings where we once had shoulds smooth as ravens' claws."

My sincere condolences


Can you feel it?
All around you?

We're all here, drawn like moths to your brilliant light.
Love and Light is everywhere....

Cook. You've a crowd to feed.


Kate, I am so very sorry.


May the Spirit of All hold you and keep you through this. *hugs*


Death is nothing at all

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I and you are you,
W whatever we were to each other, that we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference in your tone,
wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow,
laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Pray smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort,
without the trace of a shadow in it.
Life means all that it ever meant,
it is the same as it ever was.
There is unbroken continuity,
why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you
somewhere very near
just around the corner.
All is well

You have touched my heart over many miles...

For you Kate, dear heart.

May the blessings of the sky be yours in this time so dark on earth,

My Dear Friend,
As I write this my tears fall freely, my heart aches and that lump we can never swallow is there.
He flys with the Eagles now, soaring through clouds pierced with sunrays of brilliant colors only he can see.
He flys through the rainbows, the bright blue skys and knows a peace never found on this place called earth.
He will fly forever resting in tree's as tall as the sky.
Someday Dear Heart you will fly with him and until that day, look for the Eagle that just might be him........ waiting, and always loving you.
Know this........ someone in Texas joins you in your pain and understands all you have said. Been there did all that many times.


Kate, powerful words. I can't help but be moved to tears; I feel your pain, your anger, your sorrow, your love and I feel honored that you shared that with all of us. I'm so sorry Kate. I'm sending a huge cyber bear-hug your way. And some five alarm chicken wings too. ;) xoxo


Oh, Kate, what can I do or say to help you? Anything, anything- just let me know.

My deepest sympathies on your terrible, great loss.

mary lou

Did the step daughter and little one arrive? Be sure and REST too Kate. Let others do it for you!! They need to do something, and you need to let them. Just relax, and mind-meld with Himself.

I'll check in via email later on today. Dont forget to EAT and take your insulin!!!

My dear sweet soul sister, I'm holding you both in the light.


I don't know you, I'm a friend of Lucy. You've touched me tremendously this afternoon. I am so sorry for your loss.


I'm sorry to hear of this, Kate. I'm thinking of you.


You've inspired me more than once to brave the harsh winds of the world and assured me to never let them drown my voice out. Most of all, here you've sown a love of the real fragile beauty of this world. You've drawn it out of the wilderness I may never experience myself and gave it meaning, depth, and importance.

So as much as you've given me new eyes to look at the world you've given new strength to fight for a place in it and I pray such a transaction grants you increased strength in the days ahead.


Mrs. Noded and I are thinking of you.

I'm so very sorry to hear of your loss. These are sad times indeed. We're praying for your down here.

Some of you is in this as you are in me, dear soul


So sorry for your loss. I lost my father last week. I'll be thinking of you and your husband when I think of him.


Don't want to read without speaking, simply leave, another number in the stats, the impression of a silent unaffected visitor, because couldn't be further from the truth. I'm thankful for the policeman who helped you up and stood guard and I'm thankful for the man in the hunting shirt with his mom and pop business. And the friends you've lovingly fostered who helplessly try to return some of that love to you now.
