Our neighbor dropped off some beautiful luminarias today. Wow, and she said they are not crafty or creative. They are beautiful!
Not looking forward to tomorrow. It will be difficult to view Kathryn when my head and heart still are telling me it isn’t real. This will make it real. We (Richard and is Girlfriend Katherine) finished the slide show for tomorrow.
I worked on Kathryn’s room and still can’t find some things. I cleaned out under the stairs and still can’t find things. I’ve come across lots of wonderful things that Kathryn has drawn or written. My heart breaks when I read her writings. I also came across a letter I wrote for her in 2007. It was for her to find when I died so she would know how much I loved her.
So, pray for our strength. I will need it for tomorrow. Today was a tough one.
1.) Viewing is the 11th anytime between 1 and 5 at Mountain View Funeral home in
2.) The Service and Celebration of Life is on the 25th at Noon at Emmanuel Lutheran

3.) Don’t wear black – Bright and Vibrant just like Kathryn
What Can You Do
1.) If you know what a Luminaria is please make a beautiful one for Kathryn and mail it to our home prior to the service. We will be using them in the service. Address: 6711 71st St Ct W Lakewood, WA 98499
2.) If you don’t know what a Luminaria is you can bring a vase of flowers for the tables – but make sure it has a bright bow around the vase. Let Carol (Mom) know if you are bringing a vase of flowers so we can keep track of how many.
3.) If you would like to bring food to the Celebration of Life just let Carol (Mom) know that too. We will have main items already provided. So, salads and desserts are needed.
Carol’s email: firstname.lastname@example.org
4.) Bring your stories and smiles. Bring your happiness!
5.) I know some people like to give Money. If you would like to do this you may make a check out to Camp Goodtimes West. Kathryn would be so happy to know that people are donating on her behalf to her favorite place. You can bring donations to the service or mail to the:
