    Can somebody scan and post - for those who don't get the Chronicle?

    It still brings tears to my eyes... literally, I'm crying. I think her family appreciated us all coming together, it's the least we could do.

    Good job guys [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I think that is one of the nicest memorial ads I have ever seen.

    Thanks to those who worked on the ad and got it just right, and to Erin for posting it - for those of us on the West Coast who unfortunately won't get the actual issue for a couple of weeks....

    I'm sure Kath absolutely loves it!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I know I've said this a bunch of times, but it bears repeating... I was absolutely astounded at how many people chipped in for this. I think the final tally was about 85. If I remember right, we got about 15 donations toward our rescue horse.

    It was actually a lot of fun for me to put screen names with real names, addresses, handwriting... and I got lots of nice little notes with the checks too. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] It's funny, because everything here is so non-physical... it's just words on a screen in cyberspace. But to take something ethereal like that and turn it into a stack of 85 checks, $2400, and the beautiful ad in the COTH... well, I think that's pretty cool. Kathy woulda loved it. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    So thanks, again, to everyone who chipped in, and everyone who just lended virtual enthusiasm. And extra-special thanks to LisaMarie and Billy, who designed the ad (which is also the nicest memorial ad I have ever seen!), and to Merry, who wrote the beautiful copy.

    It's episodes like this that make this BB a great place... despite some of the less-than-stellar crap that goes on here on a daily basis. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I'll be sending off our contributions to the hospice and Horses in the Hood next week. (If those Canadian cheques ever get here... het-hem, HEIDI! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] ) And I'll get the COTH to send copies of the magazine to Kathy's family.

    The copy IS wonderful, secondary only to CactusKate's great smile in that photo.

    Thanks again to everyone who donated and/or gave their best wishes.....I know Kathy is up "there" with a HUGE smile right now.

    And for those who are wondering....."Bud" (her beloved horse, friend and companion), has found a wonderful new home in CA where he is cherished as he should always be.
