It is with huge regret and sadness that I must tell you all that Kas passed away yesterday morning.

Her heart stopped and she was only 56. She will be buried in Vancouver in the next few days by her grieving family.

For those of you who didn't know her very well, she was the kindest and sweetest woman you are likely to meet and Hunters won't be the same without her. She loved Sleuth and our community has lost a truly important member.

I may keep on her avatar in rememberance.

If you have any messages for her family then please post them and I shall pass them on.

I'm still speechless and it will take some time to sink in.

I thank you all for taking the time to read this.

I am thankful for the time we have had together, and I will greatly miss you. It is also good to know that I can rest in the hope that we will meet again on the other side. But, that does not take away the big hole in my life which I now only can try to fill with all the good memories that you left behind.

Not only were you important to me, and to many people here in Sleuth, but you were also important to all your relatives. You were always able to express things in a funny way, and see the bright side of things, and you would tell hillariously about things that happened in your family. It was always easy to tell your love for all your own, the way you cared for your son, and the close and good relationship you had with your sister, and the rest of your family. Just as your avatar shows, there is much kindness, graciousness and love that were inside you, and it was impossible to find any negative to say about you. Everyone who met you, had to love you. Just as I did as well. You will stay in my prayers and in my heart and mind.
You will be deeply missed!

Sincerely
Huglover

Jeg lyser fred over ditt minne.

(means approxiamtely:)
I want the light of peace to stay upon the memory of you.

I have just heard from Kathi's sister. Here is what she wrote:

''Thanks for your thoughts & kind words. We have just arranged for the service on Friday at 11:00 AM, but in lieu of flowers or anything of that sort, if you and anyone else wanted to do something in her memory, a memorial to PADS (Pacific Assisance Dog Society) would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know if you were aware of Kathi's association with that organization, but she & her late husband & their son Dane were all involved with them for many years. Her husband Gary had MS and had one of the dogs as a companion for serveral years before he died, and Kathi was a puppy-raiser for them. She would have the puppies for the first 18 months before they went into advanced training. In fact, one of the dogs now in advanced training is being sponsored in Gary's honor. If you are interested in something like this, you can go to their website (pads.ca) and find any information there for doing that.

Thanks for everything -

Sandi ''

I have contacted PADS and have asked them to set up a Kas Memorial fund - I should hear back from them soon.

If anyone wishes to contribute you can send money to my paypal account doz.bee@ntlworld.com .

I also invite everyone to light a candle in Kas's memory on Friday.

Thank you.

Ddog, I know that you and Kas were good friends, and I thank you for taking all this on while you deal with your own grief. Although flowers are beautiful, this type of memorial is much more meaningful and worthy of Kathi's memory, and I'm glad her sister brought it to our (via you) attention.

Ddog, thank you very much for getting in touch with Kas' sister. The memorial fund sounds like a great idea to me. Do you have a planned deadline to send over the donation?

I heard from PADS today. They cannot put a specific 'Kas' memorial on the site but are delighted to accept a donation in her honour.

I plan to leave it until Friday to allow anyone who wishes to contribute to do so & then send them our donation on behalf of the Sleuth Community.

Thank you to all those who have contributed already - it makes me proud to be part of this community.

Once I have handed over our donations I shall post the total raised and any message from PADS.

Thank you and I'll be in touch again soon.

Sandi (Kathi's sister) just sent a message i thought I would sher with you:

'Thank you SO much for your caring & all the kind words. And all the messages from the rest of the Sleuth community are totally overwhelming!

I've forwarded them to our brother & Kathi's son so both can read them again at their leisure.

Thanks again -

Sandi

The payment to PADS went out today. We have raised $300 between us!

It's been officially dedicated to Kathi. If anyone wants to contact PADS you can on http://www.pads.ca/

Many MANY thanks to everyone for being so generous and supportive.

I just logged in today for the first time in a while and didn't expect to see such horrid news. My thoughts are with Kas's family and friends in this time of need.

Due to an incredibly busy month in RL, I haven't read the boards in a while and somehow I managed to miss this terrible news until now. There are no words for the sadness I am feeling. We have lost a truly great person.
