    She will always be in our hearts. I think we need to bump this regularly and read Kathy's posts as a reminder to how courageous the human spirit can be.

    I am so very sad to hear this news.

    My deepest sympathies to CactusKate's family and friends. I saw my brother in law battle this awful disease and know it's ravages.

    Although I had never met her in person, but did enjoy talking with her through this bb.

    Having had many family members pass due to cancer, my heart goes out to her family and friends for time to pass quickly and the memory of her to always burn bright.

    Words may fail
    To express the heart
    The feelings deep
    Just expressed in part

    Words fall short
    Of what could be said
    Of her grace and wit
    and the life she led

    How fine a gift
    She bequeathed to all
    As she rode erect
    And refused to fall

    She let us see
    What it means to "be"
    Claiming every day
    As a victory

    No words suffice
    That can best relate
    What she gives us, still--
    Ride on, Cactuskate..!

    Wow, EquiMom! I hope we can use your poem in our tribute in the COTH, if given permission from her husband! That was absolutely wonderful!

    Reginapony - I've been thinking about you and have been wondering how you've been doing.

    Duffy, the first thing I did yesterday after reading the news was a search to make sure Reginapony had been posting recently. When I saw several from her on the eventing board, I knew things were OK on that front. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    bump, I think we need to keep this near the top of the list for a while. I've lost count on how many time's I've reread this thread over and over [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Duffy...of course I will, most humbly, lend my words to Kate's tribute. If they are deemed to be apropos by her husband, please do so.
