Tuesday

by Michael

Kate has had a quiet, relatively stable day, surrounded by family.

We are telling her we love her, and it is okay to leave.

Thank you all for respecting our privacy at this time.

I will follow up with more news as it is available.

And thank you also for your ongoing comments and support.

These days, I think about Kate, Michael, Owen and Naomi all day long. I can't imagine what it must be like for the kids but it feels like you are doing all the right things. I wish you all the strength and love.

Michael, please tell KO from me that I've learned so much from her and I love her very much. As a mom I know how hard it is to love people you know God intends for you to leave behind, but that she has given Owen and Naomi a great gift. She has helped prepare them to carry on when that burden arrives. What's more, she is giving them the legacy of her spirit to share, through their laughter, unconditional love, and the expressions of their own souls. We are all truly lucky to be part of your lives.

There are many of us out here thinking about all of you, loving Kate and thinking about everything she has done for the school and our community. All the strength, hard work, love for all of the kids and lots of fun and yes....a glass of wine here and there :) Approaching your community with enthusiasm, and fighting for what is right, always. Kate, you are loved. In Moulin Rouge they said "the greatest thing you'll ever learn is to love and be loved in return". It might just be a movie quote, but I believe it, and Kate, you do that. You love and you are loved. I am sending lots of our love and strength your way. Sanne & Jeff

Dear Michael,
Thank you for letting us know how Kate is doing, it is such a quiet time for so much unfolding, as Kate breathes and is not speaking much no one knows the comfort she gains just from the near by presence of the ones she loves. I am just thinking of the times in Ottawa when she lived there, and sharing baking recipes, there was a sour cream coffee cake that I made one brunch and we ate it while it was still warm while watching Nyka's CBC show "Let it Snow" and playing word games with Sylvia and KVD, and Kate's amazing wide laugh where you could see her fillings, if she even had any. And dinner parties at Chris and Sherry's eating couscous and harissa, and wishing that I'd taken notes of all the funny things that we all said. Thinking of Kate, thinking of you all, and Naomi and Owen and Kate's siblings and parents and all the rest of us friends. Sending you best wishes for peace and comfort in this sad and unfair time.
