    Wow! Thats beautiful. That picture is so inspiring and im sure everyone that sees it will realize what a special person Cactuskate was. I didnt know her very well but when I did know her too well, but everything she wrote was happy. Now THATS looking on the bright side. I know a lot of people have there problems but that lady was always in a good mood. Im so sad that shes gone [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    That is just perfect!

    I am bringing to up in my 4-H club @ our monthly meeting. I would love for us to raise money for her charity.

    Great page, and I loved the quote from Kate at the end of the copy.

    What a marvelous ad! I'm proud to have been a small part of it, nothing major like some of you, but a part nevertheless. Thanks for the marvelous work in putting it all together - the layout and the copy. And, thanks for scanning and posting the ad, Erin. I won't be seeing the real thing for a couple of weeks, being here on the Left Coast.

    and I feel like a heel in that, despite my best intents, I never actually got a check in the mail.

    I still want to do something for Kathy. Could I just make a donation directly to HITH?

    Take a hack around heaven on Willow, Kathy! You two take care of each other!

    I emailed the ad to various horse friends.
    I am so proud of our BB!!!
    You are all so caring and special.

    I would also like to add, Kathy use to post over on Towerheads.
    If it strikes your fancy, you may want to go over there and read some of her delightful postings.

    I bet she is riding Willow Robby.

    Sure, Robby! Or anyone else who didn't have a chance to send a check to me... just go ahead and make a contribution to Horses in the Hood (or the Yuma hospice) in her name. Email me if you need the contact information for either organization.

    I will mail our big contributions off to those groups on Monday.

    I am sure that Kathy is having a grand old time doting on lovely Willow. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Oh lord, now I'm really crying again.

    Robby, of course you can make a donation to HITH. It all counts, as does the caring. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    this BB has gone from entertainment to downright integral in my life. You all have no idea what you and this community means to me.

    What a fabulous ad.... great work by all.

    Robby, I will be doing the same. I told Erin I'd send a donation and then had to deal with a good friend of mine dying of Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS) and have fallen a bit behind on other things.

    BTW, for those who missed it in earlier posts... after paying for the ad, we had $1050 left over. So I have just written checks for $525 to both Horses in the Hood and the Hospice of Yuma in Kathy's memory. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Oh, and if anyone who donated wants to write this off on their taxes... here's the math. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Total, we raised $2373.70. The ad cost 1323.70 and we're giving the remainder ($1050) to charity. So, you can consider 44.23% of whatever you mailed to me to be a donation split 50/50 between HITH and the hospice. ($1050 is 44.23% of $2373.70)

    So if you sent me $50, your total donation would be $22.11, and you could tell the IRS you gave $11 to HITH and $11 to the hospice.

    Someone please correct me if my math is wrong. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    I haven't gotten my copy yet (I don't subscibe anymore but since I placed it they're sending me a copy [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] )

    I'm so glad that it turned out so wonderfully and served not only as a tribute to what a wonderful person Kathy was but what a great group of people all of you guys are [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    It really does look lovely.

    Thanks again to everyone who actualized our feelings for Cactuskate. {{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}

    Like Robby, I'd like to say that after being away from a computer for 5 days, IT IS SO GOOD TO BE BACK WITH MY FRIENDS! How JAIR is managing to do without us I'm sure I don't know!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    I am sure Kathy would be proud. If the people from California have to wait a long time for their copy of COTH, how long does it take to get to heaven? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif[/img]
