    But I think my sister-in-law might actually have known Kathy. They were in the same class at UO. I'll email her. If true, it would be so eerie.

    I don't know if everyone knows or not, but Cactuskate use to post on Towerheads also. I read some of her posts today with tears.

    Wanted to bump this up with a little bit more information. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I asked Kathy's friend and trainer, Jennifer, for an update on Bud, her horse:

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Bud has a new home now with a couple who thinks he is the smartest,
    prettiest horse they have ever seen. They spend an hour grooming, 1/2
    hour
    riding and another hour grooming. Kathy would really like that! He
    will
    always be in my care as I promised Kathy to watch over him.

    Kathy will be missed, there are few people like Kathy who understand
    horsemanship and the great privilege of owning and caring for one of
    God's
    greatest creations!<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Thought everyone would be happy to hear about that. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Also, an update on the "Cactuskate Fund." To date, we have about $2500. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] I think there are probably a few straggler checks still coming, but that's the general ballpark of what the grand total will be.

    Damn fine job, people! I have more than 80 contributions, and I think that really says a lot.

    Thanks again. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] I think we will have a vote on the charity we'll be sending a big ol' contribution to later in the week... I'm just trying to track down some more info.

    Forgot to post my check before I left; I will get it out to you today or tomorrow. So sorry for being so remiss.

    I hope CactusKate is smiling as she reads this, and I am sure her steady hand will guide us to the right charity.

    Thank you again, Erin

    How about a huge bag of carrots for Bud? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]
    I don't mean a $2500 bag of carrots, just sending Bud a carrot bouquet [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I am wiping mascara off my face as I write this.. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]
    I am the webmaster for the Arizona Dressage Association. If there is a scholarship to be set up, the family may want to get in touch with the board of directors of the ADA. They are more than willing to help set up some type of memorial fund to help riders. Just a thought..
    Here's the link.

    Thanks for all your effort Erin.

    Thank you Erin, for having this BB and allowing us to know Kathy, virtually. Those pictures bring tears, happier days when she was healthy. We all are very lucky........

    Okay, straggler here too. Should I mail it in on Thursday (not going to happen weds) or should I just mail it separately to a cancer foundation in her name?

    1-800, you can go ahead and send it to me, if you can do it in the next day or so. Just drop me a note and let me know when you send it and how much it will be for, and I'll plan accordingly.
