Our Kate (penquine)
« on: January 10, 2011, 03:48:01 PM »
Two years ago today (NZ time) we lost a beautiful member of these forums, Kate was a wonderful friend to a good handful of us here on the forums, and to one very special little dog called Sam.
She kept going and tried not to give up, but her beautiful body could take no more, until one day she was no longer with us...gone but never forgotten, you are greatly missed Kate.

Kate, our world stopped turning
the day your heart stood still
but our love for you kept going
and for us it always will.

In great sadness
Jan :'(

She was an absolutely beautiful person.  I count myself priviledged to have known her.

Thank you Jan and everyone for always remembering Kate.

I'm too sad today to write anything that makes much sense.But I wanted to say thank you for all your support and kindness to me over the past 2 years.Being able to still hear what you guys are up to and seeing you're all ok it's sort of like having a little bit of her still here.
I miss her & still love her very much.

thanks for the hugs (((((Ann)))) they are very welcome today.

that is a nice picture of her,she looks so well there.I make sure I've got lots of pictures of her like that around the house to remind me of when she wasn't so poorly,and stuff we did together.I hate how a lot of the pictures in my mind of her are how she looked at the end of her life,especially on days like today.
